“This is precisely the time when artists go to work – not when everything is fine, but in times of dread. That’s our job! . . . We speak, we write, we do language. That is how civilizations heal.”

Toni Morrison’s “No Place for Self-Pity, No Room for Fear” was first published in The Nation Magazine (2004), following the presidential re-election of George W. Bush.

After Trump’s election, it has been reposted, retweeted and reprinted in The Nation’s 150th Anniversary Special Issue.
