A Litany for Survival: The Life and Work of Audre Lorde

February 18 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Join us for an afternoon convening to honor the life, work, and legacy of Audre Lorde on what would have been her 90th birthday. Audre Lorde (1934 – 1992), self identified as a “black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet.” Lorde’s life work took the form of writer, educator, philosopher, activist towards expansive, imaginative and liberatory justice.

We are honored to premier for the first time on film, A Litany for Survival: The Life and Work of Audre Lorde, by Ada Gay Griffin and Michelle Parkerson. Following the screening, we will continue the conversation with a reflection and celebration, movement with Jasmine Hearn, and words with Alexis Pauline Gumbs who is in deep study with Lorde’s ever impactful life and body of work.

All are welcome to attend a portion or the entirety of the event.

Please contact our Education and Public Programs team with any access need for the program. We will supply masks at the program and ask people to wear them for collective care.

This event is co-presented by Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh Sound and Image, Black Unicorn Project and Carnegie Mellon University’s Frank Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry.
