Alice Walker at Center for Womanist Leadership at Union Presbyterian Seminary.

Alice Walker, author of “The Color Purple,” will keynote a conference in Richmond, Virginia, April 5-7, 2018, sponsored by the Center for Womanist Leadership at Union Presbyterian Seminary.
 
The conference will explore pressing questions, engage in rigorous inquiry, and open communication essential to the well-being of black womankind. There will be panel presentations, table talks, plenaries and multifaceted, intergenerational and innovative conversations across disciplines and among activists who embody the kinds of interconnections that womanist work makes possible.
 
Walker is an internationally celebrated writer, poet, and activist whose books include seven novels, four collections of short stories, four children’s books, and volumes of essays and poetry. She won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1983 and the National Book Award. She is the author of the term “womanist” found in “In Search of Our Mothers’ Garden.” [Detals]
