From conception to publication, Ms. Walker was generous with her time and open to suggestions, such as they were, from this editor. Emory University is privileged to serve as the custodian of the Alice Walker archive, which opened to the public in 2009. At Emory, we happily bear the privileges and responsibilities of custodianship of this national treasure. These privileges and responsibilities are shared by many across Emory University, in particular James W. Wagner, President; Earl Lewis, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs; and Rick Luce, Vice Provost for University Libraries. The World Has Changed is the first of many books that will emerge from the Walker archive. In preparing this book for publication, I wish to thank my colleagues in the Manuscript, Archive, and Rare Book Library (MARBL) of the Robert W. Woodruff Library, in particular Randall Burkett, Teresa Burke, Naomi L. Nelson, Elizabeth Russey, and Julie Delliquanti, Director of the Schatten Gallery. I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge the contributions of Michael Hall, doctoral student in the Graduate Institute in the Liberal Arts at Emory University, who served as my research assistant in the editing of this volume. I wish to acknowledge the contributions and colleagueship of Beverly Guy Sheftall, Howard Zinn, Wendy Weil, Priyanka Jacob, and the very able Sarah Fan and Marc Favreau of The New Press. I also wish to record grateful acknowledgment to those who have given permission to reprint the following conversations and interviews. Every effort has been made to contact all rights holders of reprinted material in The World Has Changed. If
