Meridian by Alice Walker
Meridian – Alice Walker’s classic novel of both feminism and the Civil Rights Movement.
The second novel written by Alice Walker, preceding The Color Purple is a heartfelt and moving story about one woman’s personal revolution as she joins the Civil Rights Movement.
Set in the American South in the 1960s, it follows Meridian Hill, a courageous young woman. Meridian dedicates herself heart and soul to her civil rights work, touching the lives of those around her even as her own health begins to deteriorate. Hers is a lonely battle, but it is one she will not abandon, whatever the costs. This is classic Alice Walker, beautifully written, intense and passionate.
