Her work predominately went into the African American experience, in particular the women with her poetic yet piercing interpretations and style.

I love her work. What a loss. :'(

Social media was filled with the same sentiment as you posted, Pete.  She was a lovely lady.


Take a walk through the "Security Garden" -- Where Everything is Coming up Roses!

I love it.  8)

A writer of Toni's stature--worldwide, by the way--this is the least that can and should be done in her honor and memory.
