Audre Lorde

Even if one should look beyond black literature, very few in the 20th century can compare to Audre Lorde’s ability to excite frustration and anger against social injustice with their works.

In From A Land Where Other People Live and Between Our Selves, Lorde explored the subjects of personal identity and social justice.

In many ways, Lorde wrote for the modern feminist women, ushering in the times of the radical and even volatile social justice seeker.
