This Is Alice Walker
A very famous book by Alice Walker.
Alice Walker reciting her speeches.

We AloneWe alone can devalue gold
by not caring
if it falls or rises
in the marketplace
Wherever there is gold
there is a chain, you know,
and if your chain
is gold
so much the worse
for you.

Feathers, shells,
sea-shaped stones
are all as rare.

This could be our revolution:
To love what is plentiful
as much as
what is scarce.
