The Color Purple
For my independent study project I chose The Color Purple. I've seen the play once before and am now very excited to begin reading the novel. I think it will be interesting to read The Color Purple while we are studying Beloved. Both focus on African American women and the struggles they face in society due to the color of their skin. The novel initially takes place in Georgia and follows the life of an young girl, Celie, who is abused and raped by her father, Alphonso.
