My favorite Audre quote among many is ‘Caring for myself is not self-indulgence. It is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare."
In honor of Audre Lorde’s 87th Birthday I am debuting this Starburst Social Justice Postcard Pack! Audre’s words, poetry and existence and have been instrumental in my journey as a black woman, artist, disability advocate, activist and academic!
I had so much fun making these cards that I want to share them with the masses! I’m only offering a limited run of 50 postcard packs until they sell out! If they sell out I’ll put another round of 50 packs for my special Audre Lorde and James Baldwin fans.
POSTCARDS WILL SHIP ON FEB 24 - Shipping continues to experience delays due to COVID19-related limitations, but I am working hard to get your order to you! You'll get an automatic email update once your package has been shipped.

- Four small 4 x 6 postcards come in the postcard pack, two Audre Lorde postcards and two James Baldwin Postcards. Design on one side and blank on the other so that you can send some snail mail joy to your comrades in solidarity, justice and love.
- Image descriptions: Images of florescent rose, magenta, gold and amber colored postcards. New photo illustrations and collages of two black radical activists and thinkers Audre Lorde and James Baldwin. Quotes from each from adorn the top of their heads like crowns of poetry.
- These two quotes have carried me through the end 2020 as moments of despair consumed me at times.
- James Baldwin quote reads: ‘Ignorance, allied with power, is the most ferocious enemy justice can have.’
- The Audre Lorde quote reads: ‘Caring for myself is not self-indulgence. It is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare."
