Alice Walker forces us to take a deep look at what culture really means to us. On one hand, it is our inheritance from our ancestors. On another, it is our everyday experiences with our family and friends. For most of us, it is not a simple thing. Our experiences are not always the same as our DNA would suggest. Walker's tone shows us what her personal answers are. It is important to think about her questions and her answers and then... to answer the questions for ourselves. To find our own balance.
Each answer should include: your thoughts, a quote that supports them, and a citation for the quote.
