Parmar's compelling documentary film about writer/activist Alice Walker captures the extraordinary life and legacy of one of the most important twentieth century women in the world. A must-see for Women's Studies and Black Studies classrooms, BEAUTY IN TRUTH is also a portrait of the complex ways in which race, class, gender, and sexuality intersect in contemporary U.S. history.
