About the event

Audre Lorde, the Berlin Years, 1984-1992 explores a little-known chapter in Audre Lorde’s life before and after the fall of the Berlin Wall. An acclaimed African-American poet and activist, Lorde’s incisive, often angry, and always brilliant writings and speeches defined and inspired the American feminist, lesbian, African-American, and women of color movements of the 1970s and 1980s. Join us for a screening and conversation between the director Dagmar Schultz and the distinguished historian Blanche Wiesen Cook.
