Screening: "Audre Lorde: The Berlin Years"
Are you interested in the work of Audre Lorde, or in black, lesbian, feminist theory, activism and literature?
Then join us for a screening of the documentary Audre Lorde: The Berlin Years.
Audre Lorde - the Berlin Years 1984 to 1992 documents Audre Lorde's influence on the German political and cultural scene during a decade of profound social change, a decade that brought about the fall of the Berlin Wall and the re-unification of East and West Germany. This chronicles an untold chapter of Lorde’s life: her empowerment of Afro-German women, as she challenged white women to acknowledge the significance of their white privilege and to deal with difference in constructive ways.

The screening is free and open to all, no reservation required. We will discuss the film after it is screened.
The screening is hosted by the Sociology MA module “Feminist Theory and Epistemology: Debates and Dilemmas”, with the support of the Centre for the Study of Women and Gender.
