    ALICE WALKER IN THE CLASSROOM 2 I am eight years old and a tomboy. I have a cowboy hat, cow-boy boots, checkered shirt and pants, all red. My playmates are my brothers, two and four years older than I. Their colors. This small book is a handy guide for bringing the work of author Alice Walker into the classroom. It includes biographical information, ideas for literature.

      The first African American to win the Pulitzer Prize for fiction, Alice Walker was born the eighth child of sharecroppers Willie Lee and Minnie Lou Grant Walker, on February 9, , in Eatonton, Georgia. Walker became the valedictorian of her segregated high school class, despite an accident at age eight that impaired the vision in her left eye. Alice Walker has a new book out called The Cushion in the Road, a collection of her “meditations” on a wide range of topics including the election of the nation’s first African-American president and advice for finding joy, clarity and purpose in life.. Given Walker’s unequivocal support and advocacy on behalf of the Palestinian people in recent years, it is perhaps not surprising that.

    Alice Malsenior Walker was born on February 9, , in Eatonton, Georgia, to Willie Lee and Minnie Tallulah (Grant) Walker. Like many of Walker's fictional characters, she was the daughter of a sharecropper (a farmer who rents his land), and the youngest of eight children.
