Toni Morrison’s beautiful prose explored the often horrendous experience of Black women’s identity in America.

The first African-American woman to win the Nobel Prize in Literature, she was the author of 11 novels, including “Song of Solomon,” which follows the life of an African-American man from birth to adulthood, and “Beloved,” a story about a family of former slaves that won the Pulitzer Prize.

Sun Valley Museum of Art will show “Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am” at 7 tonight—Wednesday Feb. 3—at the Liberty Theatre in Hailey.

The film is billed as an artful and intimate meditation of the life and works of Morrison from her childhood in an Ohio steel town to book tours with Muhammad Ali. It is an exploration of race, America, history and the human condition as see through the prism of her literature.

It also includes discussions about her many works, including “The Bluest Eye,” “Sula” and “Song of Solomon.” And it features interviews with such people as Oprah Winfrey, Fran Lebowitz and Angela Davis.

The screening is part of The Museum’s current BIG IDEA project, which celebrates the ways women have worked for social change.

Tickets are $10 for SVMoA members and $12 for nonmembers. To reserve a seat,  visit www.svmoa.org or call 208-726-9491.
