PURPLE

Alice Malsenior Walker (born February 9, 1944). She was born and raised in Georgia.
She has written at length on issues of race and gender, and is most famous for the critically acclaimed novel "The color purple" for which she won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
On March 8, 2003, International Women's Day, on the eve of the Iraq war, Alice Walker was arrested along with 24 others for crossing a police line during an anti-war protest rally outside the White House. Walker said of the incident, "I was with other women who believe that the women and children of Iraq are just as dear as the women and children in our families, and that, in fact, we are one family."
She has a website CLICK onto the link and find the answers to the questions under the picture:
  1. How many siblings has she got?
  2. Write the titles of three Alice's books.
  3. Which is the link to her blog?
  4. Make the description of one of her photos.
  5. She's much more than a novelist, what other activities does she do?

Listen to her talking about her novel "The color purple":

In the link below there's a scene from the movie "The color purple", based on the novel. One of the characters say the following sentence:

"Look at you! You're black, you're poor, you're ugly, you're a woman, you're nothing at all!"

  • Who's the character? Describe it.
    • Write a comment about the scene and the sentence.

    In my opinion Alice Walker is an example for many women to continue, because she demonstrates to be proud of being a woman and that inspires me very much.IWD is a very important day for her and I actually realise what it means for her,as she is black it isn't very easy for her to fit in the current society.

    O Día da Muller Traballadora é importante porque vale para recordar que todos somos iguales,e a muller é igual ca o home,e viceversa.

    Esta mujer me parece que es una persona que lucha por el sueño de muchas mujeres, para que tengan los mismos derechos que los hombres y el mundo sea un lugar sin indiferencias.
    Es una mujer muy valinete al hacer una protesta en frente de la Casa Blanca.
