Audre Lorde Memorial Service, NYC, 18 January 1993

Here are a few of the speeches given at Audre’s memorial service, so many years ago. Everything I recorded that day is on its way to her archives at Spelman, safely preserved and available for generations to hear.

  1. As a new graduate of the Columbia School of Journalism, I was at this service. It was a memory only in my thoughts … until, thanks to you, these recordings. I knew little about her then, but the service allowed me to know what an amazing soul she was/is. Thank you for giving voice to my memories of that special day.
