The volume was published to mark the 20th anniversary of the death of Black lesbian poet and feminist author Audre Lorde. Included in the book is a collection of previously published and previously unpublished texts by Audre Lorde.
“Her essays, poems, lectures, and stories are incisive and resolute, casting an unsparing eye on reality while always conveying hope.” Common to all texts is “[…] a call to language and active action that could not be more urgent. Like many of Audre Lorde’s appeals, writings, and calls, it was formative for the (international) women’s movement and especially for the Black women’s movement. The unreserved exploration of sexism, racism, homophobia, and class make Audre Lorde one of the most influential fighters for Black women’s rights, even twenty years after her death.” From the publisher’s book description.
