"This entire journal is devoted to my time filming The Color Purple. It was my solace and refuge during this most profoundly thrilling time. Every day I couldn't wait to get to set. And every night I looked forward to writing about it. On this particular day, I was preparing to shoot a scene when the entire cast is gathered for Easter dinner and Sofia (my character) has just returned from jail." —Oprah
