Obama Pays Tribute to ‘National Treasure’ Toni Morrison

Former US President Barack Obama paid tribute Tuesday to Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison who died aged 88 following a short illness, describing her as “a national treasure.”

“Her writing was a beautiful, meaningful challenge to our conscience and our moral imagination. What a gift to breathe the same air as her, if only for a while,” he wrote on Twitter.
