Sunday School is a monthly session that celebrates the spiritual legacy of Queer Black Ancestors with attention to their sacred texts, our memories of their impact and the knowledge that they remain among us in infinite ways. Come and feel the spirit!
Joseph Beam ❤ Audre Lorde: February 7th 2010
10:30 am at the Eleanor on Rigsbee (email firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
