Toni Morrison, who chronicled the African American experience in fiction for more than five decades, has died aged 88. The novelist was the first African American woman to win the Nobel prize for literature and is widely regarded as a champion for repressed minorities. Speaking on racism, Morrison said in an interview : "If you can only be tall because someone else is on their knees, then you have a serious problem. And my feeling is white people have a very, very serious problem"
