Audre Lorde: Your Silence Will Not Protect You: A Reading/Discussion Series

Lorde’s powerful voice, documented in her poems, essays, speeches, bio-mythography and Cancer Journals, remains vital and instructive. Her beautiful writing is not only worth reading for its own sake, but continues to provide keen insight into the differences that strengthen American society. This series provides participants an opportunity to discuss Lorde’s work as she explores issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality. This series is made possible by a Humanities New York Vision/Action Grant, and facilitated by Karen Schoemer.

Meetings  will be online, at 6:30 pm:
May 18 — intro
June 15
July 20
August 17
September 21

The books will be provided on loan–arrangements will be made for delivery after registration.
