Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison, M.A. '55, returned to campus March 7, 2013 for a conversation about literature, politics and, especially, language. She answered questions posed to her by longtime friend and colleague Claudia Brodsky, a professor of comparative literature at Princeton University, where Morrison is the Robert F. Goheen Chair Emerita in the Humanities.

The Africana Studies and Research Center and the Institute for German Cultural Studies co-hosted the event.
