Steven Spielberg directed the film "The Color Purple". It's an excellent film based on the pulitzer prize winning book by the same title; A classic piece of African-American feminist literature. I was just curious what the title symbolizes, and hoping to find out how the color purple might connect with any part of the story.

Hello hightechfool, "Note that the novel's title is alluded to in Letter 12, when Celie associates the color purple with royalty and longs for a purple dress. But the title undoubtedly comes from a passage near the end of the novel, in which Shug says that she believes that it 'pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it.'"
