Toni Morrison special

Toni Morrison special

The American writer Toni Morrison is renowned for novels which focus on the experience of black Americans, particularly emphasising black women's experience in an unjust society and the search for cultural identity. Her books include Beloved, for which she won the Pulitzer Prize, Song of Solomon and The Bluest Eye, and in 1993 she was awarded the Noble Prize for literature. In a special programme recorded at this year's Hay Literary Festival, she talks to Razia Iqbal about, among other things, her writing, her childhood, being awarded the Nobel Prize for literature, and what place the issue of race has in America today.

Presenter: Razia Iqbal
Producer: Rebecca Armstrong.
