Arguably one of the most preeminent authors and activists of our time, Alice Walker’s life’s work is equally compelling and inspirational. Filmmaker Pratibha Parmar, beautifully captures Walker’s influence in her new documentary, Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth, which chronicles Walker’s extraordinary journey from her birth in a paper-thin shack in cotton fields of Putnam County, Georgia to her recognition as a key writer of the 20th Century.
We’re doubly excited about this new film project as we’ll be collaborating with the filmmakers on developing an educational component for the film and executing various engagement activities including social media and strategy. We hope you’ll tune in to watch the film on PBS American Masters on Friday, February 7, 2014 at 9 pm EST.
The film offers audiences a truly penetrating look at the life and art of an artist, a self-confessed renegade and human rights activist. If you’re planning to watch, we also encourage you to follow along and chat with us as we live tweet using the hashtag #beautyintruth.
