Filmmaker in Person!
A penetrating look at the life of author Alice Walker, who became the first black woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for her novel The Color Purple in 1983. Pratibha Parmar traces Walker’s inspirational journey from the cotton fields of Georgia during years of violent social change, through her precarious life as a black rights activist living in an interracial marriage, to her international success as a writer. Featuring intimate interviews with Walker and her inner circle (including Angela Davis, Quincy Jones, Gloria Steinem, and Howard Zinn) Beauty in Truth restores her place as a profoundly influential cultural and political voice of our times.
