One of my current reads is Audre Lorde’s 𝘚𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘳 𝘖𝘶𝘵𝘴𝘪𝘥𝘦𝘳, which is the perfect travel size and divided into relatively short chapters, so it’s often my pick for on-the-go reading. Today, I’m reading on the train, and I just came across this sentence that I love:⁣
⁣
“community must not mean a shedding of our differences, nor the pathetic pretense that these differences do not exist.” ⁣

“Für Audre Lorde gehörten Schwarze Deutsche zur afrikanischen Diaspora und waren wichtiger Bestandteil ihres persönlichen und politischen Lebens. 1987 erklärte sie in Berlin auf der Tagung “Der Traum von Europa” den versammelten Schriftstellerinnen, Europa sei lange ein Alptraum für sie gewesen, und ihr Traum, ihre Vision für eine Zukunft Europas seinen Schwarze Europäerinnen, die Bindestrichmenschen, die Europas letzte Chance eröffnen könnten, mit Verschiedenheit umzugehen.” Quelle:
Audre Lorde – Auf Leben und Tod – Krebstagebuch, Auszug aus dem Vorwort von Dagmar Schultz

I’m so happy with this portrait of Audre Lorde. Especially her eyes and how the wood grain and halo drawn you in. It will be on display with a couple other pieces at the Black, Out, & Proud event on June 1, at The Vanderelli Room. #lisaspieces #lisamclymont #audrelorde #odeseries #throatchakra #halo #lifeintheeyes #genius #hero #blackhistory #lgbtqhistory #womenshistory #sisteroutsider #warriorpoet #artmakescbus

“To search for power within myself means I must be willing to move through being afraid to whatever lies beyond. If I look at my most vulnerable places and acknowledge the pain I have felt, I can remove the source of that pain from my enemies' arsenals. My history cannot be used to feather my enemies' arrows then, and that lessens their power over me. Nothing I accept about myself can be used against me to diminish me. I am who I am, doing what I came to do, acting upon you like a drug or a chisel to remind you of your me-ness, as I discover you in myself.” -Audre Lorde

♀️ HAPPY FEMINIST FRIDAY! "The master's tools will never dismantle the master's house." -- Audre Lorde

It's been awhile since I've read Audre Lorde in my undergraduate women's studies days but it feels good picking up her work again. She's been talking intersectional feminism for years and this collection of essays focuses on her experiences as a "black lesbian feminist socialist mother of two". I definitely recommend checking out this book as well as her other work.

SISTER OUTSIDER | AUDRE LORDE

SYNOPSIS: A collection of fifteen essays written between 1976 and 1984 gives clear voice to Audre Lorde's literary and philosophical personae. These essays explore and illuminate the roots of Lorde's intellectual development and her deep-seated and longstanding concerns about ways of increasing empowerment among minority women writers and the absolute necessity to explicate the concept of difference—difference according to sex, race, and economic status. The title Sister Outsider finds its source in her poetry collection The Black Unicorn (1978). These poems and the essays in Sister Outsider stress Lorde's oft-stated theme of continuity, particularly of the geographical and intellectual link between Dahomey, Africa, and her emerging self.

I post a lot about the victories within eating disorder treatment. Yesterday was a hard, defeating day. I'm using all my self care skills today. 
Audre Lorde wrote, "you're never really a whole person if you remain silent, because there's always that one piece inside you that wants to be spoken out, and if you keep ignoring it, it gets madder and madder and hotter and hotter, and if you don't speak it out one day it will just up and punch you in the mouth from the inside". Everyday I see clients swallow down all kinds of pain. After awhile, it punches them in the mouth from the inside. Every so often it takes a swipe at the rest of us too. 
Process all your feelings. Learn to spit them out. The body is not meant to hold all that pain.

I've told myself the same stories over the years. This job will be fine, you can make it another year. It's too hard/scary to move on. Take a chance on love even if you're not sure and should probably stay to yourself. Date men, it's easier, even though you've always wanted to be with a woman. The list goes on. I'm ready to write new stories about myself and my life. Get rid of the ones that don't serve me and keep the ones that I should reference later. I'm learning each day how I'm changing. Or accepting how I haven't embraced my true self. "Sister Outsider" by Audre Lorde, a book @mo.luhv let me borrow is saving me. (I promise I'll get my own so I can return it lol)  It's slow going because I read the same essay two to three time, outloud, repeating phrases. Everything I do to move forward must come from the inside. I'm growing.

♀️ HAPPY FEMINIST FRIDAY!

I've been trying to mix in more nonfiction books into my reading life and these are some of the feminist books I've been reading lately. I think I've gotten too caught up in what is super popular on bookstagram and I have kind of lost sight of reading the books that are actually interesting to me. Too often I want to read what everyone else is reading even if it's not what I would normally choose. I'm trying to get back to myself and only read the books I'm really into and these three will hopefully do the trick.

Are you a #bookstagrammademedoit reader or do you stick to what you really like, even if it's less popular?

“The above forms of human blindness stem from the same root - an inability to recognize the notion of difference as a dynamic human force” - Audre Lorde

Chapter from The Sister Outsider. Audre Lorde was a black, woman, lesbian, mother, poet and a scholar. She was dancing through identities. Making them intersect, enrich.

One cannot say it often enough: Sister Outsider by Audre Lorde is a very important book. Still. Almost 40 years after it was first published.
Recounting anecdotes from her life, reacting to the people and politics of her time, Lorde is a fierce spokesperson against any form of oppression.
.
"The fact that we are here and that I speak these words is an attempt to break the silence and bridge some of those differences between us, for it is not difference which immobilizes us, but silence. And there are so many silences to be broken."

Audre Lorde was a freedom fighter and she taught us how to fight. Born and raised in Harlem, NYC, Audre was a womanist, activist, and brilliant writer. 
Our lives are intersectional and so should be our struggle for liberation.

I have uttered the word "damn" after every page of this book. 🤯

#AudreLorde was/is profound.
Her words sting like the freshness of an open wound... Many of these essays/speeches were written in the 70s & 80s but could easily apply to the present state of #blackexistence in america today.

“The strongest lesson I can teach my son is the same lesson I teach my daughter: how to be who he wishes to be for himself. And the best way I can do this is to be who I am and hope that he will learn from this not how to be me, which is not possible, but how to be himself. And this means how to move to that voice from within himself, rather than to those raucous, persuasive, or threatening voices from outside, pressuring him to be what the world wants him to be.” –Audre Lorde

And the best way I can do this is to be who I am and hope that he will learn from this not how to be me, which is not possible, but how to be himself. And this means how to move to that voice from within himself, rather than to those raucous, persuasive, or threatening voices from outside, pressuring him to be what the world wants him to be.” –Audre Lorde

Such a good book and still terribly relevant. I mean, really too relevant—we should have made more progress since 1984. If you’re interested in taking on racism, sexism, homophobia, ageism, and classism, Lorde is the author to read.

This was also my pick for the #magicalreadathon2019 for history of magic. #owlsreadathon2019 📚

Que livro tem sido sua companhia? 📘📗Nesta semana tão intensa cá estou no consultório acompanhada deste livro precioso que reúne ensaios e discursos de Audre Lorde. Estou ou não muito bem acompanhada?

Quem viu meus stories da viagem pra Califórnia sabe que quase deixei ele lá, mas na última hora não resisti (ainda bem!). Valeu muito a pena, recomendo muito a leitura.

E você? Qual tem sido o seu livro-companhia?📚 #autocuidado #lereviajar #livros #lovebooks #psicologia #selfcare #loucaporlivros #sisteroutsider  #audrelorde #leiamulheres #cuidardesi #dicadelivro #leiamulheresnegras #psicologanegra #saudemental

"Audre Lorde informed me, as we were working [on this book] one afternoon, that she doesn't write theory. 'I am a poet,' she said."
.
It turns out that Lorde is the very BEST kind of theorist because she doesn't just describe how things are but how we can envision it to be. And Lorde's vision is so generous!  This is rage couched with a belief that people can come together and connect. It's inspiring that someone who faced racism, sexism and homophobia so constantly could armor herself with such hope and resilience and courage.  That's the power of poetry, y'all. (There are plenty of fightin' words here as well.)
.
I've read several of these essays throughout my lifetime but to finally read this collection in its entirety is to fully understand the scope of her goodness, her vulnerability and her warrior-queer-rebel genius.  I will have to follow this reading with one of her poetry collections because Lorde may be one of the most visionary individuals I've ever read.  I'm shook.
