Amy is joined by guest Suzette Duncan to discuss Sister Outsider by Audre Lorde. Topics include the daily toll of hatred, modeling action instead of guilt, Black hair, and code switching.
Suzette Duncan is a proud first generation American, born to parents from the Caribbean nation of Guyana. She has spent most of her adult life working in education and has been lucky enough to work in both Japan and the United States, and to teach students ranging in age from 5 to 80. Her working life is now paused because of disabling chronic illnesses, but she is fortunate to be able to continue to learn and to create, two of her favorite parts of working in education. Suzette is currently learning a lot about music theory, philosophy, history, economics, and baseball, and is making a lot of music, as well as doing a bit of writing. She is also a butch lesbian, and a wife and mother, to the most amazing early childhood education expert, and 18 year old Shakespeare nerd, respectively.
