This thesis aims to study how Afro-American women are repressed by class, race, and gender. Black feminists have argued that the Afro-American critical theories which emerged during the Black Arts Movement of the late sixties and seventies were overtly masculinist. There is an assumption that the black feminist critics will necessarily be black women because white and black men both view things from a male perspective. Alice Walker belongs to the tradition of black feminist writers.

She depicts class, race, and gender oppression in her works. Her works are focussed on the war of gender. Her most famous work is The Color Purple(1982). She depicted racial and gender discrimination that she had experienced during her childhood in her family. Walker was born in rural Georgia in the South of the United States of America. She was the eighth and the youngest child of sharecropper.

In The Color Purple Celie tells her story. Celie represents the black women of the South. She writes letters to God in which she tells about her life. Her roles as daughter, wife, sister, and mother. In the course of her story she meets a series of other black women who shape her life: Nettie(Celie's sister, who becomes a missionary teacher in

Africa), Shug Avery(the blues singer her husband Mr.- is in love with), and who ironically becomes Celie's salvation. There is also sofia, the strong willed daughter-in-law whose strength and courage inspires Celie, and Squeak who goes through an awakening of her own. Throughout the story Celie is the center of the community of women, the one who knows how to survive. She is uneducated and she is writing exactly as she speaks and thinks. There is nothing artificial about her writing style. The most distinctive characteristic about Celie's letters are their naturalness. However, it will be a long time before she gains enough self-esteem.

Celie began her life as a virtual slave, the victim of men, of traditional sexual roles, of racism, and of innumerable social injustises. She has struggled for many years, keeping alive the memory of Nettie, believing in Nettie, despite the fact that she had no proof that Nettie was still alive. This is testamony to Celie's courageous spirit. as is Celie's love for Nettie and for Shug, which finally allows her to forgive her husband, for all of his intentional cruelty. Love heals heartaches, and love leads Celie to forgiveness and reconciliation. When the novel ends, Celie is solid. Love has sustained her. She has learned how to love herself and to share love despite continually cruel pressures. She has endured and learned how to love herself and to share love despite continually cruel pressures. She has endured and learned to fight and she has won her battles.

What Walker demonstrates most clearly in her novel is that one has to make his or her own world. She trusts one's potential ability to change and in her words to survive wholly.
