Please join us to celebrate the life, work, and accomplishments of Audre Lorde — Black poet, writer, radical feminist, Womanist, lesbian, and human rights activist — on the 30th anniversary of her death and the 50th of her moving to Staten Island with her partner Frances Clayton and two children. Audre Lorde lived in the Stapleton Heights neighborhood for 17 years, teaching at Hunter College and producing some of her most important work. The event will take place virtually on Thursday, Oct. 27 from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. Faculty members from the College of Staten Island and community partners and friends will make brief presentations about the many dimensions of Lorde’s life, work, and legacy. In addition, clips of Audre Lorde reading and speaking will be presented. The event will conclude with questions, comments, and reflections from audience members.
Please note: Advance registration is required for this event.
