This neo-slave narrative went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction; some would even argue its prestige led to Morrison's crowning achievement when she received the Nobel Prize for Literature.
Thirty years later, we will explore the various ways that this momentous work of historical fiction has influenced our arts, scholarship, and the culture at large when it comes to imagining the legacy of American slavery, contextualizing such histories through the Black Atlantic, and in creating new and provocative visions for freedom. The symposium features a cross range of scholars and artists who will address these themes through critical conversations.
