ALICE WALKER: BEAUTY IN TRUTH
SAT, JAN. 7 @ 6:30PM

Alice Walker: Beauty In Truth is the compelling story of an extraordinary woman's journey from her birth in a paper-thin shack in the cotton fields of Eatonton, Georgia to her recognition as a key writer of the 20th Century. Alice Walker made history as the first black woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for fiction for her groundbreaking novel, The Color Purple, which has been transformed from a novel, to a Hollywood movie and latterly to a successful Broadway musical. This universal story of triumph against all odds is not that different from Walker's own story.

Born in 1944, eighth child of sharecroppers, her early life unfolded in the midst of violent racism and poverty during some of the most turbulent years of profound social and political changes in North American history. Beauty In Truth looks at the art and life of an artist, a self-confessed renegade and human rights activist. Praised and pilloried, Walker is a fearless pioneer whose voice has driven people to express joy as well as anger and ruthless vilification. Alice Walker's inspiring journey is also a story of a country and a people at the fault line of historical changes.

Alice Walker: Beauty In Truth is a complex exploration of Walker as a writer, public intellectual and human rights activist.  Walker was a key architect of the US civil rights movement as much as a participant. In 2010, Walker was awarded the LennonOno Peace Award for her ongoing humanitarian work by Yoko Ono.Beauty In Truth offers audiences a penetrating look at a life lived with passionate commitment to truth and justice.
