You cannot discuss great literature without talking about Alice Walker’s The Color Purple. Walker was a bisexual activist at a time when it felt far from socially safe to be one. She’s one of the best Black bisexual authors of our time. The layered and moving story is told through letters and addresses. Tough issues such as poverty, racism and rape, all set to the backdrop of the deep racism of the South in the early to mid 1900s. The Color Purple also tells the story of the protagonist Celie’s same-sex relationship with a blues singer at a time when non-hetero-normative relationships could be anything from ridiculed to dangerous.
