Poetry and politics: Audre Lorde, Adrienne Rich and the women’s liberation movement

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As poets, both Adrienne Rich and Audre Lorde gave artistic expression to the radicalization of the 1960s and 70s. As theorists and activists, they were deeply immersed in debates about race, class & sexuality in the Women’s Liberation movement. They were also politically engaged with each other as writers, socialists, educators, and activists. While focusing on the life and work of these two writers, this workshop will also explore larger debates about race, class and sexuality within (and without) the women’s liberation movement.
