Publisher's Summary

Presenting the essential writings of black lesbian poet and feminist writer Audre Lorde, Sister Outsider celebrates an influential voice in 20th-century literature. In this charged collection of 15 essays and speeches, Lorde takes on sexism, racism, ageism, homophobia, and class and propounds social difference as a vehicle for action and change. Her prose is incisive, unflinching, and lyrical, reflecting struggle but ultimately offering messages of hope.
This commemorative edition includes a new foreword by Lorde scholar and poet Cheryl Clarke, who celebrates the ways in which Lorde's philosophies resonate more than 20 years after they were first published.

Most Helpful

One of the most important things I have ever listened to.

This audiobook was amazing. Lorde is thoughtful, engaging, and heartbreaking with her words. Robin does a great job keeping her emotions out of it so you can hear the depth of what Lorde is saying rather than her interpretation of what Lorde is saying. This is one of the best books I have ever read or listened to.
