I don’t know why it took so long for this story to come to light, but better late than never, and although I’m not a fan of Alice Walker I admire her integrity for identifying with the struggle of people who are as oppressed as some of the people of Walker’s novels. Now there are two African American women who have put their lives on the line by defying Israeli authority and going to Gaza to see first hand what it’s like there; the other being Cynthia McKinney. Where are African-American males on this issue or any other American male for that matter? You can read what Walker had to say here, at DesertPeace. Hat tip to them. Check out an interview with Walker while in Gaza below.
