Resurrection Sunday Week 7 Legacy - Hers

Resurrection Sunday Week 7 Legacy - Hers

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 "Legacy-Hers" is from her last collection of poems. In it she meditates on her critical and changing relationship to her mother's legacy. This poem helped me to finish a long overdue essay on Audre Lorde's legacy and send it to Gloria Joseph for an exciting book project that she is working on. It also helped me to face the end of the year and to prepare to honor the legacy of those who have transitioned this year. Your assignment is to write/think/talk with others about whose legacy makes space for you. What are the legacies that challenge you, affirm you and keep you critical?

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!
