Alice Walker

The Color Purple author has resurfaced to discuss her successful career in a new documentary “Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth” which will premiere on PBS on Feb. 7 at 8 p.m. As the first African-American woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for fiction, Walker discusses her groundbreaking novel, its 1985 movie adaptation, and the backlash she received from black males and critics for nearly a decade after its release.

Her documentary will be included in a special PBS segment for Black History Month.

See her interview “Alice Walker: Life after The Color Purple” with The Defender Network’s Kam Williams here.
