The bond can not be broken.
It open up dialouge in the African America and Caribbean community, focusing on the black male struggle/ domination. The abuse of each woman either physical or mental showed us their strength. Each of these women had a connection to family and they maintained loyalty which was rare due to the fact Slavery and Jim Crow, broke not only the human spirit but family bonds. It also showed that loyalty wins in unbalanced states such as rape and incest. It moved me to tears because it was forbidden,taboo, and prohibited to talk about much less fight back. These strong women suffered in silence!!! I love the way Alice Walker, show’s us loves connection, is greater than the negative which tries to suppress the human spirit.
