Burst of Light

9780486818993

A great American theorist of race, gender, living, and dying, poet and activist Audre Lorde created a body of work that was ahead of its time in its embrace of intersectionality. Lorde's writings have become increasingly influential since her death in 1992, contributing to the timeliness of her 1988 American Book Award-winning collection, A Burst of Light.

From reflections on her struggle with cancer to thoughts on lesbian sexuality and African-American identity in a straight white man's world, Lorde's voice remains enduringly relevant. Those who practice and encourage social justice activism frequently quote her exhortation, "Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare."

In addition to the journal entries of A Burst of Light: Living with Cancer, this edition includes an interview, Sadomasochism: Not About Condemnation, and three essays, I Am Your Sister: Black Women Organizing Across Sexualities, Apartheid U.S.A., and Turning the Beat Around: Lesbian Parenting 1986, as well as a new Foreword by Sonia Sanchez.
