Summer of Our Lorde:

Because it is better to READ! This Summer BrokenBeautiful Press presents Summer of Our Lorde: Radical Study and Intentional Healing. Summer of our Lorde is a study group/community building project inspired by the work of black lesbian feminist mother warrior poet Audre Lorde. Read along!

Quirky Black Girls: Because Audre Lorde looks different in every picture ever taken of her. Because you make up your own meanings of “black” and “girl” every day by living. Make a profile, join the conversation and bask in the bright brilliance of Quirky Black Girl Productions!

Letters to Audre Lorde: Born in an Africana Women’s Studies course at Bennett College for Women in Greensboro, this is a love movement across space and time inspired by your favorite black lesbian feminist mother warrior poet.
