      David Hinckley New York Daily News Out of all this, she emerges as a woman who speaks eloquently and plainly, whether describing her lifelong activism or recalling how the Color Purple characters lived in her head for a full year, talking all the while. Rated: 3/5 Feb 6, 2014 Full Review Inkoo Kang Village Voice Walker's life is so eventful - and her contributions so important - that the hagiography is worth forgiving. Dec 3, 2013 Full Review Aviva Dove-Viebahn Ms. Magazine Expressive without being sentimental, revealing Walker as not only a brilliant writer and intellectual, but also a deeply soulful woman who stands behind the power of her convictions. Jun 24, 2021 Full Review Claudia Connell Daily Mail (UK) Told with great insight, humor and affection, Alice's story was every bit as compelling as one of her books. Rated: 4/5 Jul 19, 2018 Full Review Prairie Miller WBAI Radio A vibrant yet candid portrait of Walker's lasting influence and legacy on both art and social issues, and how she transformed the national cultural and political conversation. And crucially, how 'activism is the rent I pay for living on the planet.' Jan 31, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews
