This episode of the F Word celebrates the life and work of Black lesbian feminist mother warrior poet, Audre Lorde. We feature interviews with Alexis Pauline Gumbs and Dagmar Shultz. Both have works featured in the Audre Lorde Fall Festival hosted by the Institute of Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice on Wednesday, October 15 and Thursday, October 16 at UBC. Alexis will be bringing her interactive oracle project, The Lord Concordance, and Dagmar Shultz will be screening her film Audre Lorde: The Berlin Years 1984 to 1992.
We were fortunate enough to catch up with them both and ask them about the impact of Lorde s work today, their own work, and the politics of representation.
The F Word seeks to facilitate feminist dialogue and use media as a foundation for positive social change. For more information on The F Word, please visit our website at: www.feminisms.org or email: email@example.com
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
