Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory of the [Lorde] @ Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture

Happy Pride Month Brooklyn!  Percy Shelley, the renowned England Romantic poet, reminds us that “poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world.”  This phrase rings true for writers like Audre Lorde, an Afro-Caribbean lesbian feminist, an award-winning poet. Her poems were acts of radical self-love, truth-telling, and a ‘political warfare’. In lieu of this Pride Month, June 3rd, the Revolutionary Lover, Jé Hooper, Intern Leader for 3 months at Brooklyn Ethical, will share with us a platform of poetic-justice interweaving the life of Lorde and the manifestation of her legislative words as revealed today.  Come share in a word-working experience of change and celebrate the evolution of human sexuality in an unapologetic spirit of Audre Lorde. (Feel free to bring in your favorite Audre Lorde poem or your own.)

June theme: possibility.  What does it mean to be a person of possibility?  What does it mean to be a community of possibility?

We start the formal program at 11:00 and usually end about 12:30.  After that, we have a time of informal conversation with some beverages and snacks.  Please feel free to bring some snacks to share!
