"The Foreigner’s Home explores Toni Morrison’s artistic and intellectual vision through “The Foreigner’s Home,” her 2006 exhibition at the Louvre. Through exclusive footage of Morrison in dialogue with artists, along with extensive archival footage, music, and animation, the film presents a series of candid and incisive exchanges about race, identity, “foreignness,” and art’s redemptive power."

After the screening, stay for a panel discussion with the filmmakers Rian Brown and Geoff Pingree, Oberlin College Africana Studies faculty Charles Peterson and Meredith Gadsby and esteemed guest and award-winning author Edwidge Danticat who is featured in the film. Danticat, a 2009 MacArthur fellow and a 2005 Anisfield-Wolf Book Award winner is known for her insightful depictions of the immigrant experience.
