First read this back in college over 20 years ago. Lorde's words are deeply thought-provoking as well as inspiring. May she rest in peace.

I am unclear who all the anonymous people are who rated this book poorly with no written feedback. Audre Lorde's work has become an American classic. Her brilliance is penned in each piece. Cheryl Clarke who is an amazing author and poet wrote the opening. I highly recommend this and other works by Audre Lorde.

One of the first left, feminist books I read thankfully. Not sure what I'd think now, but an important part of my intellectual history.
