Your Black History: Pulitzer Prize Winner Alice Walker
By Victor Trammell
In today’s edition of Black Blue Dog’s month-series of editorials titled, Your Black History, I have chosen to chronicle one of America’s most illustrious writers on her birthday.
Alice Walker (pictured) is in every way inspirational and relevant to the experience of black America, as well the experience of all women in America. Her work as an activist, poet, and author is a mirror to the nation’s need for radical changes. Her graceful, yet powerful interpretation of social justice will leave a long, lasting legacy that should spark our current and future generations of thinkers.
