when it was a best-selling book by Alice Walker. The book went on to win a Pulitzer Prize, and the story was made into a

thinks is her father. Her “father” then gives her to an older man to be his wife, and her new husband abuses
her as well. Through contact with other characters, Celie eventually finds her voice and thrives. See the transformation
