Alice Walker: Beauty In Truth
Pratibha Parmar, 2013, 84 min

Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth offers a penetrating look at the life and work of this artist, human rights activist, and self-confessed renegade. Though Walker broke into national prominence in 1983 as the first black woman to win the Pulitzer Prize, her influence on American literature was already well-established. Director Pratibha Parmar traces Walker's extraordinary journey from the cotton fields of Georgia, through her precarious life as a black rights activist living in an interracial marriage, to her international fame as the writer of The Color Purple. But the success of that novel, as well as the subsequent film and stage versions, came at a high price. Employing intimate interviews with Walker and members of her inner circle including Angela Davis, Quincy Jones, Gloria Steinem, Howard Zinn, and Walker's ex-husband, Beauty in Truth seeks not simply to document Walker's many achievements, but to restore her to her rightful place in history; not only as a key literary figure of the 20th Century, but as a profoundly influential activist whose inspiring journey reflects the national story of our country and people during a time of great historical change.

Q&A (via Skype) with Director Pratibha Parmar & Reception to follow screening.
