Your Silence Will Not Protect You!- The Audre Lorde Reading & Discussion Series

May 16 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Saturday, repeating until May 30, 2020

Audre Lorde’s powerful voice, documented in her poems, essays, speeches, biomythography and Cancer Journals, remain vital and instructive. It is not only worth reading for its own sake, but continues to provide keen insight into the differences that strengthen American society. This six-part series, led by Allyson Martinez and Farrah Lafontant, provides participants an opportunity to discuss Lorde’s writings as they explore issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality. Each session will include a hands-on workshop exploring personalized self-care.

Detailed information and reading syllabus for all sessions will be available soon. Several books will be explored within the six part workshop series. Books will be available for loan to all participants.

Please email or call to register. Space is limited and participants are encouraged to register for the entire series. To register and for more information contact zach@wyckoffmuseum.org  or 718-629-5400.

This series is possible through a generous grant by the Humanities New York foundation.
