  1. The Accomplishments of Audre Lorde, a Black Female Social Revolutionary
    were Great. Being Black, and a woman, and a Lesbian, she had three strikes
    against her. But she would not get out of the Ball Game. She kept on
    Swinging, and making home runs with her writing. Thanks to You Tube, there
    are many Audre Lorde Videos for the world to see, so she is not dead and
    buried. The Intellectual, Audre Lorde, could only exist, where there is
    freedom of Speech, and Freedom of Press, and Freedom of Ideas.

  2. “…So it is better to speak
    we were never meant to survive.”

  8. I’ve been trying to get a copy of this DVD for about 8 years. It’s not
    available for “personal use,” which is deeply unfortunate. I saw it once at
    college. I don’t know why TWN posted this. It’s like a tease to anyone who
    is not affiliated with a “worthy” organization. I think we should start a
    movement to make this film available to all!

    college. only once, and it was LIFE CHANGING. happy birthday, audre!

    social activist Audre Lorde those who want to see more why? not put it to
    dvd for fans of the aouther.
