Litany for Survival: The Life and Work of Audre Lorde

February 18 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us for an afternoon convening to honor the life, work, and legacy of Audre Lorde on what would have been her 90th birthday. Audre Lorde (1934 – 1992), self identified as a “black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet.” Lorde’s life work took the form of writer, educator, philosopher, activist towards expansive, imaginative and liberatory justice.

We are honored to premiere for the first time on film, A Litany for Survival: The Life and Work of Audre Lorde, by Ada Griffin Gay and Michelle Parkerson. Following the screening, we will continue the conversation with a reception, performances, and readings centering the voices of artists, writers, and educators who continue to be formed by Lorde’s ever-impactful life and body of work. A full schedule of the afternoon will be posted in early January. All are welcome to attend a portion or the entirety of the event.
