Alice Walker is much more than simply (simply!) the first black woman to win the Pulitzer Prize. She’s a trailblazing feminist, a civil-rights activist who married a Jewish man at a time when interracial marriages were still illegal in some states, and a self-described renegade. (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. (Bonus: Alice Walker will be present at tonight’s premiere.) (Egyptian, 805 E Pine St,, 7 pm, $12)
