“For we have been socialized to respect fear more than our own needs for language and definition, and while we wait in silence for that final luxury of fearlessness, the weight of that silence will choke us.” -Audre Lorde,“The Transformation of Silence into Language and Action*”
This essay by Lorde was the first essay I read in college, and as a recent college graduate, it continues to be relevant in my life. Please join me on this journey of putting my feelings and experiences into language and action!
