“What are the words you do not yet have? What do you need to say? What are the tyrannies you swallow day by day and attempt to make your own, until you will sicken and die of them, still in silence? Perhaps for some of you here today, I am the face of one of your fears. Because I am woman, because I am Black, because I am lesbian, because I am myself – a Black woman warrior poet doing my work – come to ask you, are you doing yours?”
Audre Lorde, “The Transformation of Silence into Language and Action”
This fall join our community reading group as we engage the work of Audre Lorde – a Black woman warrior poet – and ask ourselves what our work is today, and how we might transform our silences into language and action.
We will have six sessions, offered both in person (Stearns Room) and online. All are welcome! Drop in for one session or attend all six.
Led by Sarah Klockowski.
