Speaker Suzanne Anderson Owner / Broker Suzanne Anderson Properties "Marketing Your Business Your Organization Your Self 99 Date: Nov. 17th Time: 6:00 PM Place: Innova 20 Greenway Plaza Litany for Survival: The Life and Work of Audre Lorde 1995, 90 minutes, directed by Aida Gay Griffin and Michelle Parkerson " Houston premiere at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 1001 Bissonnet: Saturday, Nov. 11, 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 12, 2:00 p.m. & 7:00 p.m. Internationally regarded as a significant contributor to the struggle for women's liberation, lesbian and gay rights, and civil rights, Audre Lorde (1934-92) won numerous awards for her prose and poetry written over five decades. A controversial and celebrated African-American writer, Lorde was born in New York City's Harlem to Caribbean immigrants and became an outspoken feminist throughout her fight against breast cancer. She was one of the first writers to publish volumes of poetry and essays regarding such topics as race, gender, sexual identity, and justice, winning the American Book Award in 1989 for A Burst of Light. From her activism in dynamic social movements to her inspiring and forceful workshops, Lorde's remarkable life is chronicled in this remarkable tribute. Local presentation of A Litany for Survival is sponsored by Astraea National Lesbian Action Foundation, Hazelwitch Productions, Inklings Bookshop, Lesbian Health Initiative, Lesbians in Business, Nia Gallery, the Houston chapter of National Black Women's Health Project, and Sisters of Houston. Winner of the Starbuck's Audience Award for Best Documentary at the 1995 San Francisco International Film Festival and presented at the 1995 Sundance Film Festival, A Litany for Survival explores the human potential of a woman with multiple social identities who also embodied many different strategies for survival and change. Variety comments that the film "exhibits the enchanting personality of an unusual woman considered in some circles a counterpart to Malcolm X." It weaves elements of poetry, archival footage, music, and interviews to resemble real-life conversations with an African pace. The narrative structure is based on interviews with Audre Lorde during the last years of her life and challenges the audience "to envision what has not yet been and work with every fiber of who we are to make the reality and pursuit of that vision irresistible."
