The Color Purple Letter Seventy-Seven Summary

  • Celie’s finally happy.
  • Her business is going well and she has twins working for her, Jerene and Darlene.
  • Darlene tries to teach Celie to talk so she doesn’t sound quite so backwards and rural. Darlene thinks Shug would be proud if Celie could speak better, but Shug says, Celie "can talk in sign language for all I care."
