Audre Lorde Resurrection Sunday 11 When the Saints Come Marching In

Audre Lorde Resurrection Sunday 11 When the Saints Come Marching In

Launched on Nov. 17th 2013 on the 21st anniversary of Audre Lorde’s transition from an embodied warrior healer to an ancestral force, this is a weekly series of videos documenting and sharing my process of clarifying survival through a re-immersion in the words of Audre Lorde. To see all the videos so far check out:

This week's poem "When The Saints Come Marching In" was the Oracle poem for my recent keynote at the Bayard Rusting Symposium. Meditating on civil disobedience Civil Rights all-star Bayard Rustin's concept of Angelic Troublemakers I saw fit to draw on this poem where Audre Lorde prophesies a new religion where what is grimy is god. Your challenge this week is to look at the diritness of your own life for new resources for your faith in transformation. :)

Every week as part of my practice of resurrecting Audre Lorde in my life and in our communities I will be making an alphabetical oracle from the weekly survival poem which will consist of up to 26 new poems based on the sacred source text. If you would like to receive a custom poem as a blessing for your journey you can with a donation of your choice to Eternal Summer of the Black Feminist Mind’s School of Our Lorde!
