In preparation for the reading and discussions series, Silence Will Not Protect You!: The Writing of Audre Lorde, the library will be screening the new documentary Audre Lorde – The Berlin Years 1984 to 1992 by filmmaker Dagmar Schultz. American poet, librarian, and civil rights activist Audre Lorde resided in Berlin, Germany during a critical personal and political time. This documentary chronicles an untold chapter of Lorde’s life: her empowerment of Afro-German women, as she challenged white women to acknowledge the significance of their white privilege and to deal with difference in constructive ways.
