This final chapter deals with the vast body of Alice Walker's literary and political work. All her novels, especially The Color Purple, Meridian, and The Third Life of Grand Copeman are discussed in detail. Walker left the South in 1971, yet the South remained central in all her novels throughout the 1970s and 1980s. At the same time, Walker rejected the label of southern writer.
