Never Meant to Survive: Anti-Social Deaths & Our Lorde’s Prayer

Lyndon K. Gill

 Through theoretical engagement with and the performative invocation of black lesbian feminist poet and theorist Audre Lorde’s poetry and prose, this workshop is at once an invocation of the past and a vision for our collective future. Creatively considering what  black, queer, Caribbean artist intellectuals have inherited through Lorde’s poetry and from her lived lessons about the uses of the erotic. This happening asks what it means to develop the self ceaselessly. What if Audre Lorde has been trying to salvage our future all along by daring, even beyond her last breath, to save our lives?
