Audre Lorde Resurrection Sunday Sisters in Arms

Audre Lorde Resurrection Sunday Sisters in Arms

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 "Sisters in Arms" has been helping me think about solidarity with the sisters I met in Cuba now that I am back in the United States. The double meaning in the title refers to warrior sisters working together and also to the embrace or intimacy that we can offer each other and ourselves to heal each other and support our revolutionary journeys. Who are the sisters you want to embrace and stand up with this week?

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!
