Celebrating Toni Morrison’s 90th Birthday


Happy Birthday Toni Morrison!

This February 18th, Toni Morrison would have celebrated her 90th Birthday. In honor of her life and amazing literary legacy, there will be a series of programs throughout the country — in classrooms, on college campuses, in libraries and at community centers — that will celebrate Toni Morrison on her 90th Birthday in scholarship, readings, dramatic presentations, and in song and dance. We have included here a list of programs that organizations will host on her birthday or will launch on her birthday and continue all year. We hope that you will find the right program for you and take time to remember on her birthday and throughout the month, the many ways that Morrison’s artistry enriched our lives through language.

Happy Birthday, Toni Morrison!
