@makercityla : Think back to 1953, being a black woman attending Cornell University, then in the 1960's before most women of color were taking high level roles, becoming the first black female editor in fiction at Random House in New York City. +
During an era, when not only were women told to not seek higher education, but also dismissed for having ideas of their own about having a career, oh…and swayed from being money makers, you go off and do something bold and crazy like going forward and doing it anyways. Living the life you know you were born to live+
RIP Toni Morrison, thank you for being so wonderfully bold and living to your own standards. +
