The Color Purple (1982), Alice Walker

ColorPurpleTo Kill a Mockingbird was set at the same time and in the same place and also had a female author. Both novels revolve around the hatred and divides of the time, and with a few notable exceptions in Mockingbird, white Southern society is mean and uncaring. The Color Purple is the journey of two sister’s  to rediscover the concept of family, through a landscape filled with lost and angry black men, lost and angry white men, and the indifferent African descendants of those who sold their neighbors in the first place.
