This week we say goodbye to writer, editor, teacher, Nobel Prize winner, and activist Toni Morrison.

 

"I tell my students, 'When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.'"

 

This week we say goodbye to the great #ToniMorrison, who once said, “If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else.”We couldn’t agree more.#AvengerOfTheWeek #GenderAvenger https://www.genderavenger.com/blog/avenger-of-the-week-toni-morrison
