“I have a duty to speak the truth as I see it and share not just my triumphs, not just the things that felt good, but the pain, the intense, often unmitigated pain. It is important to share how I know survival is survival and not just a walk through the rain.”

― Audre Lorde


ZAMI NOBLA has donated its papers to the Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture and History. ZN realizes that the documentation of the presence and contribution of Black Lesbians in our world is related to our visibility in society.

We are mindful that every piece of documentation is a keepsake. We invite you to join us in the effort to record the footprints of Black lesbians by preserving your own records.
