The purpose this presentation is to elaborate on the knowledge of bisexual relationships that occurred in the early 1900’s regardless of the sexual and racial oppression of the time period. I believe that through art and through literature we are able to experience and view through a greater lens, the human experience . The Color Purple by Alice Walker (Adapted for stage by Marsha Norman) walks us through the relationships our main character Celie , is involved in and evolves through . As an audience see many different factors as to how her trauma and/or life has affected her attraction and affection towards certain relationships but most importantly the relationship she has with herself.
