Since its publication, Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye has consistently landed on the American Library Association’s most banned books list. We’re celebrating this book (and belatedly honoring Banned Books Week) to help bring attention to something dear to all of us — artistic and intellectual freedom and the opening of minds.

We are also inviting our community to read the book, write a song and play it at our event, for the very first BBCO Open Mic!
