Clip: 02/07/2014 | 44s

"It's not possible to separate Alice from her work," says writer and feminist Gloria Steinem. "Of anyone I've ever known or could possibly imagine, she's the most true .... When people used to ask me in the early days 'What is Alice Walker really like?' I always said, 'She's exactly like you think. There is not a private self and a public self.'" This outtake interview is a web exclusive.
