Summary
Perhaps best known for The Color Purple, which won both the National Book Award and a Pulitzer Prize, Alice Walker has a varied body of work that includes novels, short stories, poetry, essays, and nonfiction-much of it informed by her experience of growing up under Jim Crow laws in Georgia, where her parents fought for the right to teach Alice to read. In this program, Walker explains what she calls the "womanist" perspective of The Color Purple and other novels
