Warrior Women

Warrior Women

June Jordan, Alice Walker, Lucille Clifton and Audre Lorde.

This picture was taken at the Phillis Wheatley Poetry Festival in November, 1973. The festival, organised by poet, Dr. Margaret Walker, was in commemoration of the 200th anniversary of the publication of Wheatley’s “Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral”.

I think I get chills every time I look at this picture; it is embedded with so much power, knowledge, and valiance.
