'Alice Walker, ‘Beauty In Truth’

We have no doubt done some extensive reporting on this essential new documentary by filmmaker Pratibha Parmar, about acclaimed (and controversial) novelist and activist Alice Walker.

Just last month, we reposted with Jana Sante’s review of the film (HERE), when it was shown at a special event at the African Diaspora International Film Festival in December.

Now, if you have been waiting for your chance to see it, you’ll have your chance very soon.

The long running PBS series American Masters will broadcast the documentary on Friday Feb. 7 at 9PM Eastern Time (though, of course, make sure to check your local listings).

Not only is the documentary being presented for Black History Month, but also in honor of Ms. Walker’s upcoming 70th birthday on Feb. 9th.

Here’s the new trailer for the American Masters broadcast:
