A Litany for Survival in Pandemic Times - after Audre Lorde
11 months ago
Audre Lorde was a Black lesbian feminist poet and an inspiration to look to, for she could see both difference and sameness, and know how to work with both. She was a fierce activist and listening to her can be both empowering and soothing in these times of crisis - a crisis of capitalist exploitation that led us to a climate crisis and a pandemic that makes deeper the already existing inequalities. But one can learn to live with fear and beyond it, with disease and beyond it, and most importantly, with each other - care and organize, for each other. 00:15 Part I - fear is normal 03:11 Part II - our differences are our strengths 06:00 Part III - community care 07:58 Part IV - a litany for survival This video was made by just wondering… If you can, do support us, it will really really help us with the production costs: Here’s our website to find out more about us: Twitter: Facebook: This video is fourth in a series: a ”Dictionary of thinkers and concepts” that we think with!
