Toni Morrisson Shes is far from being shallow with her writing and everytime i read one of her books over again i always find something new out.....especially in beloved and she does not take her words for granted in her writing shes very symbolic with every detail in her writing and she doesnt write just for the heck of it but to appeal to a rare side of the audience which makes them hunger for truth while reading ....She has wrote Beloved , the bluest eyes, paradise, love, tar baby, songs of solomon, jazz and sula. Beloved is definitely my favorite out of the bunch. paradise and beloved are in my personal library

bell hooks Why? Because she is a genius. She educates, challenges and captivates me. Her writing style is bold, concrete and articulate. Her work has been a significant part of my intellectual and political development of over the last 8 years. She is my mentor. She has written about 35 books. Of those 35 or so I've read: We Real Cool: Black Men and Masculinity Yearning: Race, Gender, and Cultural Politics Rock My Soul: Black People and Self-esteem Feminist Theory: From Margin to Center Breaking Bread: Insurgent Black Intellectual Life Black Looks: Race and Representation Talking Back: Thinking Feminist, Thinking Black Killing Rage: Ending Racism Ain't I a woman?: Black Women and Feminism - My all time favourite book. Where We Stand: Class Matters Bone Black: Memories of Girlhood - The first of her books that I read at 13 As well as a number of articles.
