“You are your best thing.”

This inspirational quote may be short but it’s a powerful reminder from Toni Morrison’s Beloved to hold your head high. Morrison’s 1987 cultural milestone is based on a true story of Margaret Garner (named Sethe in the book). The haunting tale of the horrors of American slavery tells the story of Sethe, a former slave who escaped to freedom but is still haunted by the trauma of her past. Sethe comes to believe her home is haunted by the vengeful ghost of her daughter, who died nameless and whose tombstone that only reads a single word: “Beloved”.
