Review

Five phat peace signs to sister Filmmaker and Director, Jennifer Abod, for this outstanding cinematic contribution to Black lesbian history. This film touches us where we live and breathe. It brings Lorde’s vision directly into our souls and third eye as we hear the voice/poetry/love/compassion and yes, rage, of Audre as she speaks out on the importance of empowering and not ignoring poor women’s communities, third world lesbians and Black feminists, and Black women in America fighting against racism, sexism and classism…

This film exhibits the power of women organizing–the power of women who refuse to be divided by difference of thought and philosophy, age, race, religion, economic bracket and social status. As I sat watching Abod’s masterpiece, I cried, laughed and rejoiced. I envisioned a community that would and could embrace the vision, the dreams, the hopes of one of our greatest sisters. This film is a must see and must have for all of us…

If not us who, if not now when? Ase’
