Scope and Content Note

This series consists of files that include correspondence, printed material, and unpublished documents collected by Walker on various subjects. The first section of the series, teaching files, contains syllabi and resource materials gathered by Walker during her early teaching career. Of particular interest are the files related to Friends of the Children of Mississippi, including a set of autobiographies written by the participants of her Black History workshop that discuss African American life in Mississippi during the first half of the twentieth century.

The other subject files in this series include information on female genital mutilation, collected by Walker in preparation for Warrior Marks; correspondence of Bessie Head; clippings and genealogical material about the Walker/Grant families, Mel Leventhal, and Rebecca Walker; files concerning Cuba and African countries; programs and other printed material related to the Color Purple (musical); printed material collected during the filming of the Color Purple (movie); and material related to various social and political causes supported by Walker. This series also contains printed and other materials relating to Alice Walker and Robert Allen's independent publishing venture, Wild Trees Press.
