An evening exploring the work of writer, feminist, librarian, and civil rights activist, Audre Lorde. Your Silence Will Not Protect You (Silver Press 2017) brings Lorde’s essential poetry, speeches and essays together in one volume for the first time.

Audre Lorde (1934-92) described herself as ‘Black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet’. Born in New York, she had her first poem published while still at school and her last the year she died of cancer. Her extraordinary belief in the power of language – of speaking – to articulate selfhood, confront injustice and bring about change in the world remains as transformative today as it was then, and no less urgent.

Your Silence Will Not Protect You (Silver Press 2017) brings Lorde’s essential poetry, speeches and essays, including ‘The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House’, together in one volume for the first time.
