The Bluest Eye, based on the novel by Toni Morrison, follows the tragic life of Pecola Breedlove, a young black girl living post-Depression, Pre-Civil Rights Ohio. The story focuses on the importance of class struggle and racial identity. The Director and I also discussed the impact of colorism within the story, which we decided to highlight within the set.
