Poetry & Drama • 2.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Alice Walker, the first female African-American winner of the Pulitzer Prize in fiction for THE COLOR PURPLE, earnestly delivers her introspective poems about how violence, prejudice, and discrimination have affected the world we live in. In an intimate and reflective tone, she narrates 70 poems, universal and personal, which include her musings on global political history, social injustice around the world, the important people in her life, and reflections on her travels. She instills inspiration in the poems dedicated to Martin Luther King, Jr., Muhammad Ali, and Thich Nhat Hanh. The audiobook closes with two poems that convey hope for and gratitude to the world despite loss, suffering, poverty, and war. Profound and moving, this merits repeat listening.
