Behind the Doodle: Audre Lorde’s 87th Birthday and Angela Davis on Audre Lorde

Audre Lorde, internationally-acclaimed American poet, feminist, professor, and civil rights champion…   

There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle, because we do not lead single-issue lives. Our struggles are particular, but we are not alone.  —Audre Lorde

In honor of Black History Month in the U.S., today’s slideshow Doodle—illustrated by Los Angeles-based guest artist Monica Ahanonu—celebrates Audre Lorde, internationally-acclaimed American poet, feminist, professor, and civil rights champion. Born on this day in 1934 in Harlem, New York City, Audre Lorde used writing and poetry as the vehicle for her lifetime advocacy against discrimination and racial injustice. She has emerged as a key figure in the Black and LGBTQ+ cultural movements of the 20th century. Learn more: http://www.google.com/doodles/audre-l…

…and when we speak we are afraid
our words will not be heard
nor welcomed
but when we are silent
we are still afraid,

So it is better to speak
remembering
we were never meant to survive

A Litany for Survival, Audre Lorde
