Audre Lorde and the Master's Tools
Audre Lorde, who later took the name Gamba Adisa, was a popular Black feminist scholar, and member of the famed Combahee River Collective, who wrote numerous essays, poems and articles. One of her most well-known books is ‘Sister Outsider’ and one of her most famous essays is found inside of it, ‘The Master's Tools Will Never Dismantle The Master's House’.
On Monday November 30 at 7:30 pm the Feminist Jurisprudence Discussion Group will have an informal discussion about this essay and what it can teach us about intersectionality and coalition building.
