Celebrating Audre Lorde, Celebrating Ourselves!

Enjoy a special film screening of “A Litany for Survival: The Life and Work of Audre Lorde” presented by New Voices Pittsburgh: Women of Color for Reproductive Justice. Discussion to follow with filmmaker Ada Gay Griffin.

An epic portrait of the eloquent, award-winning Black, lesbian, poet, mother, teacher and activist, Audre Lorde, whose writings - spanning five decades - articulated some of the most important social and political visions of the century. From Lorde's childhood roots in NYC's Harlem to her battle with breast cancer, this moving film explores a life and a body of work that embodied the connections between the Civil Rights movement, the Women's movement, and the struggle for lesbian and gay rights. At the heart of this documentary is Lorde's own challenge to "envision what has not been and work with every fiber of who we are to make the reality and pursuit of that vision irresistible."

Delicious food and refreshments provided by Hoi Polloi Vegetarian Café and Coffee House.

Doors open 6pm | Film starts at 7pm
Donation $10 – universal sliding scale pay what you can, no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
