Summary
Pulitzer Prize-winner Alice Walker has been a standard bearer for the civil rights and women's movements since the early 1960s. In this classic interview, the womanist writer discusses her novel Possessing the Secret of Joy, in which protagonist Tashi attempts to preserve her tribal heritage by undergoing traditional female genital mutilation-still a common practice in Africa today. Archival footage, dramatized scenes from the book, and additional interviews with Gloria Steinem; Barbara Christian, Professor of African-American Studies at Berkeley University; and others shed light on Alice Walker's career and issues of womanhood worldwide, while Ms. Walker examines the influence of people and events on her life
