"When I dare to be powerful - to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid." Audre Lorde February 18, 1934-November 17, 1992 Audre Lorde (1934-1992) was in her own words "a Black, lesbian, mother, warrior poet." She was also an activist, a teacher, and a fourteen year cancer survivor. She was the author of 18 books of poetry and prose including Coal, The Black Unicorn, The Cancer Journals, Sister Outsider, and Zami. In 1980 she co-founded Kitchen Table: Women of Color Press. In 1991 she was named New York state's poet laureate. Through her writing and her life she made incalculable and unique contributions to all of the struggles for liberation, especially those of Black women, Black lesbians, and Black gay men. She leaves a continuing legacy which challenges all people who love justice to work across their differences for freedom. The turtle and the cross of the four directions is an ancient symbol of birth and creation. It is the wisdom of our foremothers manifest today on the earth plane.
