 Audre Lorde, Lucille Clifton, Alice Walker and June Jordan

Let us celebrate. 

If there is anyone out there in the interwebs who knows the backstory and the name of the photographer who captured this iconic image of these poets–who are so crucial to the legacy of womanism and black feminism–I’d love to hear it.
