I went into this book knowing very little about Audre Lorde other than she was a black lesbian poet I may have read some of her poetry back in college but I am shocked Zami wasn t assigned reading at the timeMy parents were not West Indian I am not a lesbian I didn t grow up in Harlem in the fifties I wasn t alive during the bombing of Pearl Harbor I didn t have to leave the country because of McCarthyism although I d like to leave for not dissimilar reasons And yet this book spoke to me in a way that rarely happens than other books and authors that probably easily get lumped in with Lorde Maya Angelou Toni Morrison Alice Walker etcLorde wrote about being an outsider To read her experiences today probably doesn t mean a lot to many readers because a lot has changed in the world since Lorde was young at least on paper I argue things haven t changed much at all except no one likes to talk about it openly But I have always been an outsider in my own way and I could relate to Lorde s story even though we have very little in common She knew that you could be an individual but also to be made up of every person we have shared a piece of our history with for better or worseThere s a dreamy uality to Lorde s writing than just poetry which is there because she was a poet some repetition but in order to make a point It s sort of like how as you get to know people and share stories sometimes stories repeat themselves because that s just how it happens There s no reason that it needs to be edited out these are our lives these are our stories and they re important especially if you want to really know someoneI m totally fascinated by the term Lorde coined biomythography I read here that she was uoted to have said biomythography has the elements of biography and history of myth In other words it s fiction built from many sources This is one way of expanding our visionI could not love that statement Barn Burning and other stories poet I may have read some of her Ta carrière est fi nie poetry back in college but I am shocked Zami wasn t assigned reading at the timeMy Silent Assault parents were not West Indian I am not a lesbian I didn t grow up in Harlem in the fifties I wasn t alive during the bombing of Pearl Harbor I didn t have to leave the country because of McCarthyism although I d like to leave for not dissimilar reasons And yet this book spoke to me in a way that rarely happens than other books and authors that Deep Web File #網絡奇談 probably easily get lumped in with Lorde Maya Angelou Toni Morrison Alice Walker etcLorde wrote about being an outsider To read her experiences today The Business of Design probably doesn t mean a lot to many readers because a lot has changed in the world since Lorde was young at least on Project Calisthenics.

characters ¸ Zami A New Spelling of My Name ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Free read Zami A New Spelling of My Name ZAMI is a fast moving chronicle From the author's vivid childhood memories in Harlem to her coming of age in the late. I did not know this was a book about loveMore than anything than about New York City in the 50s than being Black and gay and poor and female in that uneasy time than about the sensuality of food and the precise pleasures of style than about hustle and poetry and Audre s fraught relationship with her mother and the longing for an unknown home for Granada and Carriacou it is about loving women I must add that these things are not separable I cannot in any kind of faith tease it out as a strand Audre writes of loving women inside all these other shells and spaces and non spaces all these stiflings and terrors and sufferings all these joys and expansions into self and glory Loving women unfolding into all these places of being where it seems to Audre that lesbians are the only women talking to each other supporting each other emotionally at all in the 50s She and her friends and lovers invent the sisterhood the feminist movement obsessed about decades laterIn one scene Audre s mother hits her for not understanding racism even though she has done her utmost to prevent her from knowing and understanding it has made the topic of race taboo Is she angry with the people who hurt her daughter or frustrated that she can t control the world to protect her In any case the punishment doesn t make sense revealing the divisiveness of white supremacy the power it has to restrict and shrink loveIn this anthology Cupcakes And Kalashnikovs I read a vignette from Zami in which Audre aged 12 and her sisters and parents go to Washington to celebrate graduations from grade and high school They go into an ice cream parlour and they are not served because they are black Reading this episode in context I can see that it is entirely toothless and for the anthology to include it as one of the woefully few items that deal with race now seems utterly reactionary I think about the discomfort of the white server who told them she couldn t serve them This manifestation of legal racism was soon to be swept away thanks to pressure of black activism It seems to me that racially charged situations that makes whites feel embarrassed are good leverage while aspects of racism that only benefit whites are difficult to combat The sections that deal with the hideously unsafe factory work Lorde and other black women and men did to survive indict the culture of racism far incisively as she herself points out noting that being able to eat whatever she wants anywhere in Washington didn t seem that important in the context of her struggle to surviveThere was an echo for me of bell hooks essay Blood Works in Art on My Mind Visual Politics when Audre recalls stains on her pillow from nose bleeds being at least a sign of something living This appreciation belongs to an awareness of life s precariousness and preciousness inculcated by tragedy and the will to live beyond survivalIt s the loveliest book honestly it s so erotic so beautiful so warming and tender Such words lead towards a sweeter way of being
