Happy 79th Birthday Audre Lorde

February 18, 2013


CELEBRATING the 79th Anniversary of the birth of Black Feminist Lesbian Mother Warrior Poet Audre Lorde (February 18, 1934 – November 17, 1992)

“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. It is learning how to stand alone, unpopular and sometimes reviled, and how to make common cause with those others identified as outside the structures in order to define and seek a world in which we can all flourish. It is learning how to take our differences and make them strengths.”- Audre Lorde, Sister Outsider
