The Contemporary Urgencies of Audre Lorde's Legacy.

 

The year 2012 marked the 20th anniversary of Audre Lorde’s passing, the acclaimed Black lesbian feminist poet and activist. Audre Lorde - The Berlin Years 1984 to 1992 explores a little-known chapter of the writer’s prolific life, a period in which she helped ignite the Afro-German Movement while she challenged white German women to acknowledge and constructively use their white privilege.

Testimonies from Lorde’s colleagues, students and friends relate the beginnings of these political debates and document Lorde’s lasting legacy in Germany. For additional information and to register: http://www.audrelorde-theberlinyears.com/emails/orgs_english_short.html
