Join the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion to honor Women’s History Month as we host "An Evening with Alice Walker" on Thursday, March 18th at 5 p.m.
Alice Walker is an internationally celebrated writer, poet and activist whose books include many collections of short stories, children’s books, and volumes of essays and poetry. Walker made history as the first African-American woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for Literature as well as the National Book Award in 1983 for her novel "The Color Purple". The award-winning novel served as the inspiration for Steven Spielberg’s 1985 film and was adapted into a New York City Broadway Theatre stage play in 2005.
The event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
