Black Woman of the South

This discussion post presses you to put Audre Lorde’s notions of black male sexism into conversation with some of our observations from “Black Woman of the South”.

Lorde clearly discusses and critiques the reality of sexism in black communities. What are viable ways to address (and correct) this? In other words, what is the solution to black male sexism? Furthermore, how does Crummell’s essay shed light on this possible solution (or solutions)?
