Convoluted times call for promising bold leaders,
and in a multifarious world of challenges
Alice Walker filled the void with hope and resurrecting promise.
Reflecting back on a time where African-American women
continuously struggled with an American identity crisis,
the ambassador and critically acclaimed poet
touched the hearts of many people of all races and ethnic background
regardless — the stream of damming convalescence.
Bold, but not demanding is her demeanor,
and just like previous Queens of the Georgia Nile –
her wild and honest imagination set the tone
of “The Color Purple.”
A story that spoke and breathed of and about
the African-American experience,
a story needed to be told.
Great voices speak out without falling down,
and their words keep many dreams alive
when all seems to fade
into the black and white obscure landscape.
When the chips were down
Alice Walker always maintains that constant positive voice,
a voice bearing no surrender.
