DREAM OF EUROPE: SELECTED SEMINARS AND INTERVIEWS: 1984-1992 elucidates Audre Lorde’s methodology as a poet, mentor, and activist during the last decade of her life. This volume compiles a series of seminars, interviews, and conversations held by the author and collaborators across Berlin, Western Europe, and The Caribbean between 1984-1992. These selected writings lay bare struggles, bonds, and hopes shared among Black women in a transnational political context, as well as offering sometimes surprising reflections on the US American counter culture with which Lorde is associated. Many of the poems that were important to Lorde’s development are excerpted in full within these pages, serving as a sort of critical anthology. Edited by Mayra A. Rodríguez Castro. Preface by Dagmar Schultz.
Or you may enjoy this series of readings to launch and celebrate the book, featuring Rodriguez Castro, Imani Elizabeth Jackson, Monilola Olayemi Ilupeju, Hanna Girma, Diamond Stingily, Frankie Decaiza Hutchinson, Dorothée Munyaneza, Yulan Grant, and Makayla Bailey.
