This collective is a space for sistographers of color. We pay homage to the late sister Audre Lorde. The Zami collective attempts to cultivate a lens that incorporates friendship and an ethic of love. We create images that we want to see. We create images that we want other folks to see; images that are rooted in a lens of empowerment and that are true to our stance that black women are image makers. All images belong to the respective photographer(s). All rights reserved.
Audre Lorde, “Uses of Anger: Women Responding to Anger” in Sister Outsider (via bwildness)
one of my favorite essay EVER.
Is the total black, being spoken
From the earth’s inside.
There are many kinds of open.
How a diamond comes into a knot of flame
How a sound comes into a word, coloured
By who pays what for speaking.
Some words are open
Like a diamond on glass windows
Singing out within the crash of passing…
Audre Lorde (via hazypurplerain)
happy birthday sister Audre.
“Only by learning to live in harmony with your contradictions can you keep it all afloat.” Audre Lorde (born Feb 18th). The self-secribed ”black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet” was a poet, essayist and activist. The biography Warrior Poet is an excellent read. Lorde is also the subject of three documentaries including The Berlin Years 1984 to 1992 and can be found all over YouTube reading her own words.
