Why Can’t I See Pictures of the Full Items?

The majority of the items in the Toni Morrison Papers are still protected by United States Copyright laws that prohibit widespread distribution of reproductions. Because of this, the library is limited in what kind of content it can share on this website and online more broadly.

Below you will find the structure, interpretation and text from the February 2023 exhibition, Toni Morrison: Sites of Memory, curated by Autumn Womack (Assistant Professor for African American Studies and English), Rene Boatman (Technical Administrative Assistant, Special Collections), Jennifer Garcon (Librarian for Modern and Contemporary Special Collections), Andrew Schlager (Graduate Student, Department of English) and Kierra Duncan (Graduate Student, Department of English).

You will also find a list of the items included in each exhibition section. With this items list are links to the finding aid and catalog record where you can request to view something in person in the reading room at Princeton University Firestone Library or through the virtual reading room, if available.

For more information on viewing items in person, please see the Discovering the Toni Morrison Papers page of this website or reach out to public services staff via the Ask Us! form.
