    Never be the only one, except, possibly, in your own home.
    Alice Walker (b. 1944)

    The sight of a Black nun strikes their sentimentality; and, as I am unalterably rooted in native ground, they consider me a work of primitive art, housed in a magical color; the incarnation of civilized, anti-heathenism, and the fruit of a triumphing idea.
    —Alice Walker (b. 1944)
