Description

Join us for a screening and conversation with the director of “Audre Lorde, the Berlin Years, 1984-1992”. The film 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. Conversation with documentarian Dagmar Schultz will be led by the distinguished historian Blanche W. Cook.

Cosponsored by the PhD Program in History, CLAGS, the Center for the Study of Women and Society, and Lost & Found: The CUNY Poetics Documents Initiative.
