An animated opening collage of Morrison images by artist Mickalene Thomas is also superb. So is the score — with its memorable use of fiddle, violin and upright bass — by Kathryn Bostic. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times

Described by The Independent as “2019’s Must-See Documentary”, Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am directed by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders (American Masters) opened in US theaters in June. The score by Kathryn Bostic (Dear White People, Middle of Nowhere) is out now digitally worldwide on Lakeshore Records. Earlier this year, Kathryn became first African American female composer to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
