Hunter Community Read

Audre Lorde
One Book, One Hunter

This semester, we invite our Hunter community to read one book that complements our efforts to confront racism, provides a framework for understanding structural racism, and encourages a culture of understanding and civil discourse by bringing people together around inspiring works of literature.

The collection of essays and speeches in “Sister Outsider” will generate dialogue on our campus that will help us learn, reflect, and act as an inspired community motivated by a vision of a better Hunter and future for all.

Ms. Lorde's inspiring and timely work, "Sister Outsider", is particularly relevant as the country is engaged in a discussion about race, racism and the urgent need for reform for a more just and inclusive society. Ms. Lorde was a distinguished poet, writer, social critic, and civil rights activist.
