Alice Walker "Beauty in Truth"

It's wonderful that you can stream PBS films from the internet (see the link above)........just wanted to share this wonderful film about Alice Walker, which can be viewed online.


Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth. Full Film

"Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth" is the first film biography of writer and activist Alice Walker. Most famous for her seminal novel "The Color Purple" for which she won a Pulitzer Prize, Walker was raised in poverty in the rural South during the violent and seismic social changes of mid-20th century America. Women, poverty and civil rights became the inherent themes in her writing.
