Sula is the 2nd novel by Toni Morrison and was selected as one of the 12 finalists for the National Book Award. With the success of this book, Morrison would become a full-time novelist and the rest is history. This book basically concentrates on the struggle of African-Americans from the years 1919 to 1965. Basically, the only reference to White Racism is how the Whites cheated the African-Americans out of equal land for their labors. Like most Morrison novels, I had to read the first 50 pages or so and then start over, as the construction of her novels has so many seemingly disparate characters who all become related by the end of the novel.
