Today would be the 80th birthday of the self-proclaimed Black Lesbian Feminist Mother Warrior Poet. And to celebrate, The Feminist Wire is launching a two-week online forum on Lorde’s life and work today.
It will feature meditations, critical essays, sermons, personal reflections, poetry, love notes, and videos by a wide range of people influenced by Lorde in the US, the Caribbean, and Germany. And it already promises to be amazing, so check it out!
Maya Dusenbery is an Executive Director of Feministing.
