Audre Lorde (1934-1992) insisted upon the dignity of intersectional identities, including her own: She famously described herself as a "black, lesbian, feminist, mother, warrior, poet." In her writing and her activism, Lorde fought for equity and justice for people of color, women, members of the LGBTQ community and many others.
