"Those of us who stand outside the circle of this society's definition of acceptable women; those of us who have been forged in the crucibles of difference – those of us who are poor, who are lesbians, who are Black, who are older – know that survival is not an academic skill" Audre Lorde

Through her poetry, Audre Lorde wrote about all the ways her identity proved incompatible with the harsh and prejudiced world she lived in. A radical pioneer of intersectional feminism, she used her intense creativity to highlight the problems faced by black and lesbian women. Join Poet in the City for an empowering evening of live poetry performances and discussion and get to know the mighty voice of Audre Lorde: black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet.
