U.S. writer Alice Walker reaffirms friendship with Cuba

The American Alice Walker, Pulitzer Prize winner for the fiction work «The Color Purple» (1983) and fighter for women’s rights, reaffirmed in Havana the great affection she feels for Cuba.

Unveiling a bust of American novelist Langston Hughes in Old Havana, along with a delegation from the United States, this authoritative voice of world literature said that memories are powerful, referring to the tribute to the National Poet of Cuba, Nicolas Guillen.

Walker told Prensa Latina that they were in the poetry space of the Lombillo Palace to, among other things, honor Guillen for his poetry.

That makes us see that we also have those memories of those who are no longer here, he said.

Without memories we cannot move forward, we have to remember those who went before, that is why it is important to always keep in mind our memories, said the renowned activist.

Walker pointed out that, in some way, many dreamed of this day, mentioning the union and diversity among all.

It is incredible that no color is missing here, let’s look at all our colors, who could have dreamed of this in Cuba some 300 years ago,» exclaimed the author of the monumental work «The Color Purple», on which two films of the same name were based, one from 1985, directed by Steven Spielberg, and the other from 2023, by Blitz Bazawule.

In a certain way we must think that we are winning, don’t believe in defeat,» Walker told the press.

The African-American writer pointed out that there are many of us in the world, but it is necessary to show ourselves to him, to go straight to the way to change the situation of our planet; there are many people around in favor of the Palestinian cause and this must be defended, she pointed out.
