Revolutionary Hope: A Conversation Between James Baldwin and Audre Lorde

“It’s vital for me to be able to listen to you, to hear what is it that defines you and for you to listen to me, to hear what is it that defines me – because so long as we are operating in that old pattern, it doesn’t serve anybody, and it certainly hasn’t served us.”

LA Review of Books

Reading Audre Lorde’s "Sister Outsider” After Charlottesville

Even the occasional consumer of progressive discourse in the United States is probably more familiar with Audre Lorde’s aphorisms than she might suspect. Quotes like “women are powerful and dangerous,” “the master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house,” and “your silence will not protect you” are as meme-able as they are imperative.
