We posted an Inspiration blurb on Alice Walker’s daughter Rebecca a few months back. Now it’s time to honor the matriarch, Ms. Alice, a celebrated wordsmith and activist with a voice that’s wholly beautiful and honest. There’s documentary film in the works, Alice Walker: Beauty In Truth, that tells the story of her life and an IndiGoGo campaign along with it! Only 13 more days days to fund. Support!

ALICE WALKER: BEAUTY IN TRUTH is a feature documentary film about the life and times of American writer, Alice Walker who made history as the first Black woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 1983 for her ground breaking novel The Color Purple, made into a successful film by Steven Spielberg.

ALICE WALKER: BEAUTY IN TRUTH has been 4 years in the making. During this time we have most definitely rolled up our sleeves, put our heads down and dedicated ourselves to getting this film out in the world by any means necessary. On this ever eventful journey, we have been joined by some truly committed and amazing people who share our vision to tell this inspiring story of hope. We have got this far with the help of generous donations from individuals, grants and awards, major extensions on our personal credit cards and most recently filmmaker support from ITVS. We have now completed 85% of the filming and are working towards the completion of a rough cut.

The filmmaking team is award-winning filmmaker Pratibha Parmar and producer Shaheen Haq.
