Audiovisual materials, 1962-2010

Scope and Content Note

The series contains audio and video recordings of Alice Walker's interviews, poetry and book readings, and speeches from 1962-2010. The series also includes adaptations of Walker's short stories as film shorts and cartoons, recordings of others reading her poetry, and recordings of family members and events, including early recordings of Walker with husband Mel Leventhal and daughter Rebecca Walker. Of particular interest to researchers may be early recordings of Walker talking with Staughton Lynd in 1962 while she attended Spelman College, a 1971 interview with Coretta Scott King, a recording of Langston Hughes discussing his thoughts on Walker in the mid 1960s, and an interview with Eudora Welty from the 1970s.
