Target IV: The Arts! Hosted Toni Morrison’s Sula Part II Book Discussion

Psi Eta Omega Chapter’s Target IV: The Arts! hosted a virtual book discussion of Pulitzer Prize, Nobel Prize and Presidential Medal of Freedom winner Toni Morrison’s Sula on Friday, June 11, at 7 p.m. This was a continuation of a previous discussion held on February 18, 2021 in honor of Toni Morrison Day. Unpacking was the strategy we used as we discussed the themes reflected in the second half of the book. We were given a warm welcome by our President, Dr. Dorinda Gallant. The themes discussed were race, racism, love, sexuality, suffering, community identity, motherhood, and gender roles. The discussion was moderated by our very own Yenetta Bell-Harper, who is a former English teacher and whose passion for the written word was evident as she led the discussion. Fifteen chapter members and guests were in attendance and engaged in the discussion. As women, especially black women, having healthy conversations about us is so important for maintaining a strong mindset and positive attitude. The discussion of Toni Morrison’s Sula allowed exactly that.
