Book Summary

In her first collection of nonfiction, Alice Walker speaks out as a black woman, writer, mother, feminist. The theme of her Pulitzer prize-winning novel, The Color Purple, is at the heart of several of these essays: black women in relation to their families, their mothers; to each other; to black men; to white society and the world at large. In a number of other pieces, Walker discusses the writing of Zora Neale Hurston, Jean Toomer, Langston Hughes, and Flannery O'Connor, as well as her other work. She also looks at the civil rights movement of the 1960s and the anti-nuclear movement of the present decade.
