Alice Walker's "Everyday Use" with Dr. Ian Afflerbach
Categories: Guest Lecture; Culture; Celebrating Women's History
Alice Walker remains best known for her novel, The Color Purple (1982), which won the National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize. In her short story "Everyday Use," written a few years before, we can Walker see exploring many of the same concerns that drive her famous novel: African-American women, motherhood and how families hold on to bonds through struggle, and the way that different generations often struggle to understand and accept one another's priorities.
