Read Barack Obama's tribute to 'national treasure' Toni Morrison - 08-06


Former President Barack Obama on Tuesday joined the droves of Toni Morrison devotees paying their respects to the iconic African American author upon word of her death. "Time is no match for Toni Morrison. In her writing, she sometimes toyed with it, warping and creasing it, bending it to her masterful will. In her life's story, too, she treated time nontraditionally," the 44th U.S. President wrote on his social media accounts, crafting an obituary-style tribute for the "Beloved" author.
