A Litany For Survival: the Life and Work of Audre Lorde
Poet, lover, mother, warrior—Audre Lorde was a fiercely passionate American visionary. Her poetry and prose spoke to her deepest convictions—love and anger, civil rights and sexuality, family politics and glories of nature. She gave voice to a political generation and became a role model not only for black women but for everyone who believes, as she did, that «liberation is not the private province of any one particular group.» In 1992 Lorde lost her battle with breast cancer, but she leaves behind a rich and vital legacy.
A Litany for Survival: The Life and Work of Audre Lorde, a powerful profile of the African-American-poet, will air on public television stations in 2006 as part of True Lives, a documentary series bringing classic documentaries to public television, from the producers of PBS’s POV series.
