Alice Walker, reading from Good Night, Willie Lee and other collections, gives us poems about her childhood in rural Georgia, her travels in Africa, and her involvement in the Civil Rights Movement. She describes her baptism in a local creek: “It was just such an interesting thing to go down to the creek beautifully dressed in white, with all the other people dressed in white, and be held by the people of the community.”
