Zami A New Spelling of My Name Free download Ð 108 ZAMI is a fast moving chronicle From the author's vivid childhood memories in Harlem to her coming of age in the late. I did not know this was a book about loveMore than anything than about New York City in the 50s than being Black and gay and poor and female in that uneasy time than about the sensuality of food and the precise pleasures of style than about hustle and poetry and Audre s fraught relationship with her mother and the longing for an unknown home for Granada and Carriacou it is about loving women I must add that these things are not separable I cannot in any kind of faith tease it out as a strand Audre writes of loving women inside all these other shells and spaces and non spaces all these stiflings and terrors and sufferings all these joys and expansions into self and glory Loving women unfolding into all these places of being where it seems to Audre that lesbians are the only women talking to each other supporting each other emotionally at all in the 50s She and her friends and lovers invent the sisterhood the feminist movement obsessed about decades laterIn one scene Audre s mother hits her for not understanding racism even though she has done her utmost to prevent her from knowing and understanding it has made the topic of race taboo Is she angry with the people who hurt her daughter or frustrated that she can t control the world to protect her In any case the punishment doesn t make sense revealing the divisiveness of white supremacy the power it has to restrict and shrink loveIn this anthology Cupcakes And Kalashnikovs I read a vignette from Zami in which Audre aged 12 and her sisters and parents go to Washington to celebrate graduations from grade and high school They go into an ice cream parlour and they are not served because they are black Reading this episode in context I can see that it is entirely toothless and for the anthology to include it as one of the woefully few items that deal with race now seems utterly reactionary I think about the discomfort of the white server who told them she couldn t serve them This manifestation of legal racism was soon to be swept away thanks to pressure of black activism It seems to me that racially charged situations that makes whites feel embarrassed are good leverage while aspects of racism that only benefit whites are difficult to combat The sections that deal with the hideously unsafe factory work Lorde and other black women and men did to survive indict the culture of racism far incisively as she herself points out noting that being able to eat whatever she wants anywhere in Washington didn t seem that important in the context of her struggle to surviveThere was an echo for me of bell hooks essay Blood Works in Art on My Mind Visual Politics when Audre recalls stains on her pillow from nose bleeds being at least a sign of something living This appreciation belongs to an awareness of life s precariousness and preciousness inculcated by tragedy and the will to live beyond survivalIt s the loveliest book honestly it s so erotic so beautiful so warming and tender Such words lead towards a sweeter way of being

Audre Lorde Ý 8 Download

Zami A New Spelling of My Name Free download Ð 108 1950s the nature of Audre Lorde's work is cyclical It especially relates the linkage of women who have shaped her Lord. Audre Lorde s beatiful autobiography of her child and early adulthood She s been prized for her sensuality in writing but this is no chicklit her account of the lesbian bar scene in 1950 s America will fascinate anyone interested in these forgotten pockets of culture After reading it what most amazed me about her was her unpretensiousness and her willingness to expose herself completely Few writers have been so insightful when talking about themselves
