"So in the end you can't even really regret your misfortunes," explains the beloved author Alice Walker, "because they led you somewhere."
Walker speaks from experience. From growing up poor in the segregated south and losing part of her vision in a childhood accident to receiving threats from the Ku Klux Klan for her interracial marriage and work with the NAACP in 1960s Mississippi, Walker has experienced her share of hardships.
But over the years she has channeled these experiences into groundbreaking fiction about the lives of blacks in America, becoming one of the most celebrated writers of her time. Through her continued dedication to writing and politics she remains a powerful example of what it means to lead a purposeful life.
Open Road Media is proud to present this inspiring new video of Walker, whose work is now available for the first time in digital form.
