Mississippi is the
poorest state in the
nation and one third of
Mississippi women are
illiterate. We recently
received a grait from
Lesbian Natural Resources

the down payment. We are
excited about the future
of Southern Lesbian/
Feminists as this dream
inches closer to reality.
The center will be
available for rent by
like-minded groups for
programs and other
gatherings. We have
received a few small

In Sister Spirit,,
Toxps Lesbian Conference
In 1988 a grassroots coalition of women In Dallas, through
a vision of enhancing lesbian visibility, created the 1 st Texas
Lesbian Conference. Now, in 1993, the lesbians of Texas
are coming together to promote the vision of many kinds of
power for all women. We are greatly inspired by the late poet
Audre Lorde's essay, "Uses of the Erotic: The Erotic as-
Power" in which she states, "Recognizing the power of the
erotic within our lives can give us the energy to pursue
genuine change within our world, rather than merely settling
for a shift of characters in the same weary drama." Join us
and hundreds of other lesbians at the 6th annual TLC May
21-23 at the Stouffer Presidente Hotel, Houston, to celebrate our empowerment.

Phyllis Lyon and Del Martin (Sponsored by Lesbians in Business (Li. B.) These women were the founding
members of the Daughters of Bilitis in 1953. This was the
first national organization of lesbians in the U.S. They
published the famous newsletter The Ladder and are
celebrating their 40th year together. They have co-
authored the books Lesbian Woman and Battered Wife.
Akasha (Gloria) Hull Akasha is a poet, author,
lecturer and Professor of Women's Studies and Literature at the University of California at Santa Cruz. Her
discussion will serve to illuminate our understanding of
Audre Lorde from her own experience and study.
Susie Bright (Underwritten by Inklings-an alternative
bookshop and Crossroads Market & Bookstore) Susie is
not only on the pulse of what's happening sexually, she
is the rush before the pulse. She is heralded as a
political leader, women's erotica founder and a provocative journalist. Susie's most recent book is Sexual
Reality: Virtual Sex World Reader.
Dr. Nancy Lee Josie This dynamic speaker and
minister is with MCC Cathedral of Hope in Dallas. She
will be sending us forth with energy and the power to
claim our future.
A Place of Rage will be shown throughout the day.
In this engrossing film June Jordan, Angela Davis and
Alice Walker recount their experiences in the civil rights
movement. Interwoven with June Jordan's powerful
poetry are issues of homophobia, racism, U.S. imperialism and liberation struggles around the world. The film is
highlighted by music from Prince, Janet Jackson, The
Neville Brothers and the Staple Singers.
Music by Denice Franke, Girls In the Nose and
The Therapy Sisters. Following the live bands there will
