Alice walker was a Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference scholar in 1966 and took first place in the American Scholar essay contest (1967)

Notes for her strong advocacy of social justice Alice Walker’s early work included Revolutionary Petunias and Other Poems (1973), which earned a National Book Award nomination and a Lillian Smith Award from the Southern Regional Council and In Love and Trouble (1973), a series of stories about black women. Her book Meridian (1976) is considered one of the best novels of the Civil Rights struggle and You Can’t Keep A Good Woman Down (1981) combines that theme with her feminist ideals.
