Humanities New York Reading and Discussion Series: Your Silence Will Not Protect You! The Writing of Audre Lorde
The Department of English in collaboration with the Hofstra Cultural Center presents the Humanities New York Reading and Discussion Series: Your Silence Will Not Protect You! The Writing of Audre Lorde. This series will feature the following works by Audre Lorde: Cancer Journals, Collected Poems, and Sister Outsider.
Facilitator: Jennifer Henton, Department of English, Hofstra University
In this collection of essays, Lorde describes her experiences with breast cancer, and how medical treatment and recovery relate to issues of gender and race.
This is the definitive collection of Lorde’s poetry, with poems from her early and late careers, featuring work both well-known and waiting to be discovered by new readers.
This collection of essays by Lorde constitutes her most explicit challenge to the oppression she experienced and observed in the lives of others, including racism, sexism, and homophobia.
