The Color Purple is the epic tale of 40 years in the life of a family in rural Georgia. At its center is fourteen-year-old Celie. When Celie is forced by her abusive father to marry a cruel farmer called "Mister," she is separated from all that she loves. Ultimately, Celie conquers the odds to find her voice and her strength, coming into her own. Featuring a vibrant score, The Color Purple, directed by Jereme Raickett, celebrates the healing power of love and the importance of a zest for life.
