  • Our main character is Celie, a young black girl. We follow her through a life of abuse and growth in the book The Color Purple. Celie is raped, beaten, and mentally abused by men from an early age, making her submissive and dependent. She doesn't know love, and seems to be emotional numb for the beginning of the story but as she makes friends with the strong independent women in her life, she begins to find herself and her strength. She leaves and creates a life of her own and begins to live a life of freedom.

Once she solved that conflict, she was able to find herself and createher own life, as well as valuing herself much more.
