Toni at Random: Author Toni Morrison's Work as Editor at Random House

This application proposes a full-time award over eight (8) months ($33,600) to conduct archival research at Howard University, Columbia University, and the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture on Toni Morrison's role as an editor at Random House Publishing Company from 1965-1984. During the award period, I will complete drafts of chapters of a manuscript already in progress and gather additional information needed to construct other chapters. Upon completion, the manuscript will be submitted to Random House Publishing Company or to an academic press for publication. The award will allow me to take a full year sabbatical at half-pay to complete the manuscript.
