Toni Morrison is one of the most important writers in American literature, but she wasn’t instantly recognized as such. "Sula," "The Book of Solomon," and "Beloved" brought a new perspective on being black in America. Now 88 years old, Morrison is still writing and winning awards. A new documentary, "Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am," tells her story.
