Enlightened discussion about Toni Morrison's ' The Bluest Eye'!

About this Event

Join April's virtual literary salon! The Bluest Eye, a book about the prevalence of Eurocentric beauty standards and the harm it causes, remains incredibly relevant even 50 years later.

Plot summary: Pecola Breedlove, a young black girl, prays every day for beauty. Mocked by other children for the dark skin, curly hair, and brown eyes that set her apart, she yearns for the blonde hair and blue eyes that she believes will allow her to finally fit in. Yet, as her dream grows more fervent, her life slowly starts to disintegrate in the face of adversity and strife.

Black girlhood. Eurocentric beauty standards. Banned book.
