m/other ourselves: Audre Lorde and the Creative Power of Difference

An Audre Lorde Fall Festival event

Spoken Word / Dialogue / Feast

Building on a western hemisphere tour with her interactive oracle project “The Lorde Concordance,” a series of rituals mobilizing the life and work of Audre Lorde as a dynamic sacred text, Dr. Alexis Pauline Gumbs’ interactive lecture will clarify the technology of mothering  and othering ourselves.

Dr. Alexis Pauline Gumbs is a queer black troublemaker, a black feminist love evangelist, an afro-antillean grandchild and a time traveler/space cadet.  Alexis was also the first researcher to work with Audre Lorde’s manuscript archives. She has published widely on the transnational and intergenerational impact of Audre Lorde and what she calls a Lordean ethic.  She is also the founder of the School of Our Lorde which operates online and in Durham, NC.
