Alice Walker: Beauty In Truth

Born a Georgia share-croppers daughter in 1944, Alice Walker became an influential feminist, activist and a writer whose beloved first novel, The Colour Purple won the Pulitzer Prize.  Whether engaged with black civil rights, taking on domestic violence in black communities, challenging female genital mutilation or embracing her love of women, Alice Walker's life and stories are always powerful and often controversial. It's an extraordinary life that also brings light to the central struggles of the decades she has lived through and in this film Walker's story is presented with compassion and curiosity.
