O Cinema & the Knight Foundation partner to offer a FREE virtual screening of Magnolia Pictures’ TONI MORRISON: THE PIECES I AM.

We are at a unique crossroads in our country. We all find ourselves looking for a way to address social injustices and virulent racism in our society. As community-based organization, we have the opportunity to affect significant change and foster important dialogue at this critical juncture. In times of incredible strife in our society, we often turn to the arts as an avenue to learn, enrich, and galvanize action. At O Cinema, we believe films have the power to change communities and change lives.

Starting this Sunday, O Cinema and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation will work with Magnolia Pictures to make the documentary TONI MORRISON: THE PIECES I AM (June 21st) available for FREE across eight of the Knight Foundation’s communities. This film speaks powerfully to systemic inequality and serve as blueprints for effecting change. Community partners in each city (which include Akron, Charlotte, Detroit, Macon, Miami, Philadelphia, San Jose, and St. Paul) will host virtual discussions about ways to support social justice and anti-racism in their communities. The film is being made possible thanks to the support of Knight Foundation, which has generously agreed to cover the rental fees for viewers.

This film will be made available to view each Sunday, for FREE, during a 24-hour window.

“Morrison’s legacy is more than just the titles on a reading list, and this documentary will likely help many viewers see just how monumental her accomplishments remain.”
– ROGEREBERT.COM

“It reminds us how long she had to wait for the recognition she so richly deserved, and what a distinctive, generous, funny, astute, self-doubting, unstoppable and formidable figure she was along the way.”
– WALL STREET JOURNAL

” ‘The Pieces I Am’ offers something else, as a dividend yielded by her achievements and her years on the earth: the profound pleasure of her company.”
– NEW YORK TIMES
