An epic portrait of the eloquent, award-winning Black lesbian poet, mother, teacher and activist Audre Lorde, whose writings — spanning five decades — articulated some of the most important social and political visions of the century. From Lorde’s childhood roots in Harlem to her battle with breast cancer, this moving film explores a life and a body of work that embodied the connections between the civil rights movement, the women’s movement, and the struggle for lesbian and gay rights.
