Alice Walker is a poet, short story writer, novelist, essayist, anthologist, teacher, editor, publisher, womanist and activist. In 1983, her novel The Color Purple won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, making Walker the first black woman to win. Walker was also the first black woman to win the National Book Award. Her new book, Overcoming Speechlessness: A Poet Encounters 'the horror' in Rwanda, Eastern Congo and Palenstine/Israel is Walker's reflection on recent trips she took to Rwanda & Eastern Congo and to Gaza. In her inimitable way, she takes on not just the politics of each place, but our necessary response and responsibility as human beings to the violence she witnessed
