Freeman Wicklund & Alice Walker
Freeman is showing high school students a quote from Alice Walker: "The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for whites or women for men." The source of the quote is Walker's preface to Marjorie Spiegel's 1988 book, "The Dreaded Comparison." Walker summarizes her endorsement with: "This is the gist of Ms. Spiegel's cogent, humane and astute argument, and it is sound."
