Title: Sister Outsider

Student: LaWanda Elizabeth McCants

Why this book?  Audre Lorde’s book, Sister Outsider, became one of my favorite books during my second year of graduate school.  She writes about being a black lesbian feminist mother poet warrior in world that is starkly different than her own.  Her essays on feminism, issues central to women of color, sexism, racism, heterosexism, and privilege and oppression are excellent reading for people questing for social justice.  Her prose brings to life racial and sexual identity issues that many believe to be in the past, but those that are still relevant 30 years after their first printing.  Sister Outsider  is a must read for people with intersecting identities who understand the difficulties of navigating through multiple worlds fighting for equality.
