Presenting the essential writings of black lesbian poet and feminist writer Audre Lorde. Her book, Sister Outsider celebrates an influential voice in twentieth-century literature.
In this charged collection of fifteen essays and speeches, Lorde takes on sexism, racism, ageism, homophobia, and class.

Most noteworthy, “[Lorde’s] works will be important to those truly interested in growing up sensitive, intelligent, and aware.” —New York Times
