Synopsis

The film follows the extraordinary journey of Walker from a childhood of poverty and racist violence in the segregated South, her subsequent involvement in the civil rights movement (including her historic interracial marriage), through to the release of the groundbreaking and wildly successful novel ‘The Color Purple’ and its subsequent transformation into a controversial Hollywood movie. In 2010 she was awarded the LennonOno Peace Award for her ongoing humanitarian work.
