A Litany For Survival: The Life and Work of Audre Lorde
Dir. Ada Gay Griffin, Michelle Parkerson
Self-described “black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet” Audre Lorde speaks about her extraordinary life and career, from her fearless work to advance womanist and civil rights causes to her poetry, which gives voice to society’s most marginalized. As one of the first figures to argue for the importance of intersectional feminism, Lorde was an ahead-of-her-time thinker whose ideas resonate as strongly as ever.
Black Nations/Queer Nations?
Dir. Shari Frilot
In 1995, a formidable group of queer writers, thinkers, and activists—including Barbara Smith, Samuel Delany, Essex Hemphill, and Jacqui Alexander—assembled for a landmark conference devoted to the issues facing black LGBT people. Capturing the event with propulsive energy, this extraordinary cultural document offers a unique chance to witness brilliant minds expounding on matters of race, sexuality, and their intersection.
