Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth

84 min minutes

Alice Walker is much more woman than simply (simply!) the first black woman to win the Pulitzer Prize. She’s a trail-blazing feminist, a self-described renegade, a civil rights activist who married a Jewish man at a time when interracial marriages were still illegal in some states. Simply, stupidly put: She is a force to be reckoned with. (Sample Walker quote: “People really had a problem with my disinterest in submission.”) Beauty in Truth examines her words, her upbringing, her cultural influences, and everything else that makes Alice Walker so fucking iconic.
