To accompany the Alice Austen House 2020 exhibition ‘Powerful and Dangerous: The Images and Words of Audre Lorde a panel will be formed by Victoria Munro, Executive Director of the Alice Austen House in collaboration with Lorde’s life long friends and Sister Comrades, Clare Coss and Blanche Weissen Cook. The all-women panel will closely examine the life and work of Audre Lorde and the powerful influence of her work today.
A self-described “black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet,” Audre Lorde dedicated both her life and her creative talent to confronting and addressing injustices of racism, sexism, classism, and homophobia. Lorde was a long-time resident of Staten Island’s North Shore, close to the Alice Austen House. Her former residence and the Alice Austen House are designated sites of LGBTQ history.
