Pecola thinks she’s ugly. And in post-Depression Lorain, Ohio, a sad life gives her no reason to believe otherwise. Which is why the young African American girl longs for the pale skin and blue eyes of her doll. The Bluest Eye was Toni Morrison’s first novel, written in 1970 while a young teacher at Howard University and is just as poignant and powerful today on the Playhouse stage.
