    Got involved in the Civil Rights Movement
    Published her first collection of poetry in 1968
    Her third novel, The Color Purple, was published in 1982, which won her a Pulitzer prize
    Another great works of her’s was “Everyday Use”
  • 5. ALICE WALKER
    She is a novelist, activist, poet, and feminist.
    Her works are known for their portrayals of the African American woman’s life.
    She believes in equal opportunity for women.
    She depicts sexism, racism, and poverty
  • 6. ALICE WALKER
    The Color Purple is a very interesting movie
    Its about a young 14 year old southern black girl, who has a very horrific lifestyle. Her name is Celie. She is molested and abused physically and mentally by her stepfather and her soon to be husband. It shows the poor African Americans.
    It’s a story that will truly have you in tears
    Steven Speilburg produced the movie.
  • 7. ALICE WALKER
  • 8. ALICE WALKER
    The two stories that interested me the most was “Everyday Use” and “The Color Purple”
    In those stories, Walker tells her readers a lot
    She talks on woman being mistreated by men
    She talks about how important one’s heritage is
    She makes it known that the majority of her women characters have been through A LOT
  • 9. ALICE WALKER
  • 10. ALICE WALKER
    She expresses a lot within her writings
    She expresses Black feminism, racial issues, & relationships.
    Walker is very versatile
    She is well known for defending woman.
  • 11. ALICE WALKER
    Walker believes that women should be treated equal in every aspect of their lives.
    She is very big on the rise of independence for women.
    Her strong feminist ways lead to a lot of controversy during this story.
    Walker wants all women to stand up for themselves especially when it comes to a man being disrespectful, abusive, and just flat out harmful
  • 12. ALICE WALKER
    In addition to Walker believing infeminism, she also expressed racial issues within her writings
    She focused a lot on the fact that white and black woman dealt with similar struggles but at the same time, a white woman couldn’t strongly relate to things that a black woman would go through.
  • 13. ALICE WALKER
    Due to her lack of relationships, I believe that’s why she chose to express the poor relationships in her writings
    Most people believe that she is just anti-men
    “The Color Purple” and “Everyday Use” both express her beliefs and thoughts on Black feminism, racial issues, and relationships.
