Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Toni Morrison has collected a treasure chest of archival photographs that depict the historical events surrounding school desegregation. These unforgettable images serve as the inspiration for Ms. Morrison's text — a fictional account of the dialogue and emotions of the children who lived during the era of "separate but equal" schooling.

Remember is a unique pictorial and narrative journey that introduces children to a watershed period in American history and its relevance to us today.

Review:

"Morrison uses fictional dialogue to imagine the thoughts and emotions of the subjects in the photos, often with poignant results. The images are familiar, but the feelings Morrison taps into are fresh." Nia Malika-Henderson, The Washington Post Book World

Review:

"Morrison attempts to tell the story of Southern school integration through archival photographs oddly juxtaposed with a confusing narrative....While it's nice to see familiar photographs collected in one place, the overall feeling of the narrative is confusion." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"The photographs have a uniformly high impact....[T]he pairing of the fictional text with the historical photographs poses a problem: how much is the audience asked to 'remember' and how much to 'imagine'?" Publishers Weekly

Review:

"The photos are electrifying. Beautifully reproduced in sepia prints, the archival images humanize the politics of the civil rights movement....Every library will want this not for the condescending made-up stuff but for the stirring history." Hazel Rochman, Booklist

Synopsis:

Pulitzer Prize winner and Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison pays tribute to the 50th anniversary of school desegration with a volume of unforgettable archival photographs and a fictional account of the children who lived during the era of "separate but equal."

Synopsis:

Remember will be published on the 50th anniversary of the groundbreaking Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision ending legal school segregation, handed down on May 17, 1954.
