Your Silence Will Not Protect You: Essays and Poems by Audre Lorde

Born in New York, Audre Lorde (1934 - 92) described herself as 'Black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet.' Her extraordinary belief in the power of language - of speaking - to articulate selfhood, confront injustice and bring about changes in the world remains as transformative today as it was back then. 

This edition brings Lorde's essential poetry, speeches and essays, including 'The Master's Tools Will Never Dismantle the Mater's House,' together in one volume for the first time.
