A LITANY FOR SURVIVAL:
THE LIFE AND WORK OF AUDRE LORDE

A co-presentation of the Independent Television Service and P.O.V.


"The work of the poet within each one of us is to envision what has not yet been and to work with every fiber of who we are to make the reality pursuit of those visions irresistible" - Audre Lorde

Poet, lover, mother, warrior - Audre Lorde is a fiercely passionate American visionary. Her poetry and prose speak to her deepest convictions - love and anger, civil rights and sexuality, family politics and the glories of nature. She gave voice to a political generation and became a role model not only for Black women but for everyone who believes, as she did, that "liberation is not the private province of any one particular group." In 1992 Lorde lost her battle with breast cancer but she leaves behind a rich and vital legacy. A LITANY FOR SURVIVAL, a powerful profile of African American poet Audre Lorde.
