Alice Walker was going through a special movement called womanism. Womanism means black feminism and argues that sexism, class oppression, and racism are inextricably bound together. Alice Walker and other womanism pointed out that black experienced a difference and more intense of white women. I think that were not getting what they wanted.
The Nation of Islam came into place after womanism. The Nation Of Islam started goal is to improve the spiritual, mental, social, and economic condition. Meaning that it was trying to make these goals happen for the womenst right; so they can be happy!
Black Power was the next phase of the movement. Black Power was made to be used in the movement among people of black African descent. It led black political and cultural institution to nurture and promote black collective. Yet that was not enough to satisfy the African American people!
The next and final piece of the movement is the Black Arts Movement.the Black Arts Movement helped black American become some of the greaties novelist in the world. It also let them go into programs with in UNIVERSITIES.
So in conclusion Alice Walker was a great woman. Even though she went through all the movement in her life; she still made it through. She also wrote the " THE COLOR PURPLE."
