The Bluest Eye, Toni Morrison

Toni Morrison’s first novel, The Bluest Eye, is the story of a Black girl who longs to be white with blue eyes and touches upon controversial topics like incest and child molestation. The critically acclaimed author later published Beloved, which tells the tale of a slave who finds freedom, but is haunted by the memory of the daughter she killed in order to save her from a life of slavery.
