The Color Purple Author Alice Walker Reacts To New Movie Fully Depicting Book’s Queer Romance

The Color Purple author Alice Walker reacts to the new adaptation’s depiction of a queer romance. Directed by Ghanaian filmmaker Blitz Bazawule, this new adaptation of Walker’s Pulitzer winning novel tells the story of Celie (Fantasia Barrino), a Black woman who lived through the tumultuous era of the early 1900s. The coming-of-age musical, which recently received two Golden Globe Award nominations, stands out from the previous adaptation of The Color Purple (which was directed by Steven Spielberg) by including a lesbian relationship between Celie and her friend Shug (Taraji P. Henson).
