For this year's Martin Luther King Day, graduate students Domenic DeSocio, Hannah Lichtenthäler and Andrea Rottmann organized a screening of Audre Lorde: The Berlin Years, 1984-1992 at Hatcher Gallery. The film documents an untold chapter of the African American poet, scholar, and activist’s life: her influence on the German political and cultural scene during a decade of profound social change. The film explores the importance of Lorde’s legacy, as she encouraged Afro-Germans—who, at that time, had no name or space for themselves—to make themselves visible within a culture that until then had kept them isolated and silent.
