One such incident in her life made her to stand against the imperialist Lords.
Not only is Celie a victim of this, but she is also raped by her father, Alphonso. Many years after this book was published it became a movie and also a musical. The Color Purple is set in Georgia during the 's when racial discrimination towards blacks was at oneof its highest points.
In a series of letters to God and to her sister Nettie, Celie tells the story of her life, ranging from the trauma of sexual abuse as a child to her success and wealth as an adult. The theme of the book is to be true to yourself in spite of difficulties and never let go of what you believe in.
From that Sofia was able to survive while she was in jail, so from then on Sofia kind of looked up to Celie.
This novel was her best-known work, which follows a young troubled black woman fighting not only against racist white culture but also patriarchal black culture.
