Interference Archive
314 7th Street, Brooklyn, NYC
Saturday Dec 28, 6 pm – 8 pm

We will be showing a collage of video documentaries and historical stock footage related to Audre Lorde and Emma Goldman (30-45 minutes) and followed by a discussion relating to the intersecting philosophical themes that they both illustrated in their writings that relate to the anarchistic genealogy of the refusal and rejection of state, capital(ism), and the multitude of hierarchies (institutional & interpersonal) that dominate our lives.

The screening will be organized by Interference Archive volunteer Dane and, after the screening, there will be a discussion about the works of Audre and Emma that will be an open-forum circle conversation that will be participant-led & determined with an emphasis towards the voices of marginalized populations.

The following texts are included for possible discussion (free PDF books & essays):

"The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House" by Audre Lorde
“Age, Race, Class, and Sex: Women Redefining Difference” by Audre Lorde
“There is No Hierarchy of Oppressions” by Audre Lorde

Anarchism and Other Essays by Emma Goldman
Anarchy!: Anthology of Emma Goldman’s Mother Earth journal
