Toni Morrison’s
“The Source of Self-Regard”

Rest in Power #ToniMorrison

“The justifications for enslavement became accepted wisdom& a whole race of people became criminalized. This criminalization is as old as the republic & stems from the outside-the-law status imposed on slaves—& the dishonor that accompanies enslavement.”
