The Audre Lorde/Essex Hemphill Memorial Lecture: Cheryl Clarke

The Audre Lorde/Essex Hemphill Memorial Lecture: Cheryl Clarke

Join Cheryl Clarke, the author of four books of poetry, and of, most recently, After Mecca: Women Poets and the Black Arts Movement, for the second annual Lorde/Hemphill lecture. This lecture is meant to commemorate the lives of the American poets Audre Lorde (1934 -1992) and Essex Hemphill (1957 -1995), as well as to encourage exciting scholarship and literary production within the communities to whom their poetry and prose spoke. Both Lorde and Hemphill were instrumental in the development of distinctive forms of writing among American poets, particularly people of color and members of the LGBT community. Films featuring Essex Hemphill and his poetry will be shown at Anthology Film Archives on November 9th. For more information, see http://anthologyfilmarchives.org.
