Your Silence Will Not Protect You: Essays and Poems by Audre Lorde, with a preface by Reni Eddo-Lodge, introduction by Sara Ahmed
Audre Lorde (1934-92) described herself as ‘Black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet’. Her extraordinary belief in the power of language – of speaking – to articulate self-hood, 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 brings Lorde's poetry and prose together for the first time.
