Audre Lorde, the Berlin Years, 1984-1992 explores a little-known chapter in Audre Lorde’s life before and after the fall of the Berlin Wall. An acclaimed African-American poet and activist, Lorde’s incisive, often angry, and always brilliant writings and speeches defined and inspired the American feminist, lesbian, African-American, and women of color movements of the 1970s and 1980s. Join us for a screening and conversation between the director Dagmar Schultz andthe distinguished historian Blanche Wiesen Cook.

Sponsored by The Center for the Humanities, the PhD Program in History, CLAGS, the Center for the Study of Women and Society, and Lost & Found: The CUNY Poetics Documents Initiative.
