Joseph Beam ❤ Audre Lorde: February 7th 2010

10:30 am at the Eleanor on Rigsbee (email brokenbeautifulpress@gmail.com for directions)

Co-facilitated by Justin Smith and Alexis Pauline Gumbs, this session will continue the love-fest of Audre Lorde and Joseph Beam’s letters to each other and support of each other’s revolutionary moves in Black Gay and Lesbian publishing creating a context for solidarity, love and community between queer Black folks of all gender-expressions.

We will be engaging two closely  related sacred texts, Audre Lorde’s Eye to Eye: Black Women Hatred and Anger (here) and Joseph Beam’s Brother to Brother (here) along with a sermonette by Lex about the what she found in Joseph Beam and Audre Lorde’s letters in the Schomburg Black Gay and Lesbian Archive!
