Zami A New Spelling of My Name Download ´ 107 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 Dominic's Child is a fast moving chronicle From the author's vivid childhood memories The Kanellis Scandal in Harlem to her coming of age One Hot Target Silhouette Intimate Moments in the late.

Zami A New Spelling of My Name Download ´ 107 1950s the nature of Audre Lorde's work is cyclical It especially relates the linkage of women who have shaped her Lord. My second time reading this the first being many years ago as an undergrad has reinforced my love for this book and my love for Lorde herself her prose poetry and essays all of which you should go check out She is right about so much and so much of what she says we desperately need to hear in these broken and divided times These are not from this book but I share them anyway Sometimes we are blessed with being able to choose the time and the arena and the manner of our revolution but usually we must do battle where we are standing Those of us who stand outside the circle of this society s definition of acceptable women those of us who have been forged in the crucibles of difference those of us who are poor who are lesbians who are Black who are older know that survival is not an academic skill It is learning how to stand alone unpopular and sometimes reviled and how to make common cause with those others identified as outside the structures in order to define and seek a world in which we can all flourish It is learning how to take our differences and make them strengths For the master s tools will never dismantle the master s house They may allow us temporarily to beat him at his own game but they will never enable us to bring about genuine change And this fact is only threatening to those women who still define the master s house as their only source of support I am a bleak heroism of words that refuse to be buried alive with the liars I think it would not be hyperbolic to say that reading this linked piece by her at the age of about 19 completely changed me and my view of the world
