An Interview with Audre Lorde

“And working with Black students, working with students who really questioned and caused, forced me to question what we were doing, how did we move, and what was the place, for instance, of our writing, of our poetry? And I came to see, first to feel, then to see, and then to share the fact that my poetry, and theirs by extension, were part of our weaponry. That writing, that creativity was not separate from our living, was not separate from what we had to do, from our work, that this was an aspect of our work, it was an aspect of my work. And both threatening and very very satisfying.”
