Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth

"Intrinsic in her writing is that part of her as … a citizen of the world… a woman of the world and an activist!"  - Danny Glover 

Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth "Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth" is the first film biography of writer and activist Alice Walker. Most famous for her seminal novel "The Color Purple" for which she won a Pulitzer Prize, Walker was raised in poverty in the rural South during the violent and seismic social changes of mid-20th century America.
