In Audre’s Footsteps: The Dedication

Dedicated to Black lesbian mother warrior poet Audre Lorde.

While I have never intended for my work to mimic Audre’s […] I am indebted to and aim to honor her legacy. 
—Dr. Heidi R. Lewis from the “Introduction,” In Audre’s Footsteps: Transnational Kitchen Table Talk

In Audre’s Footsteps: The Acknowledgements

Thank you to every contributor to and supporter of the genesis for this book, my study abroad course, “Hidden Spaces, Hidden Narratives: Intersectionality Studies in Berlin,” especially my students, the #FemGeniusesinBerlin. Thank you for your kindness, generosity, thoughtfulness, and encouragement. This project is possible, in large part, because of your trust in me and interest in my work.
—Dr. Heidi R. Lewis 

I am so grateful to every person who has shared space and time and love with me and Heidi these past 7 years in Berlin and across digital geographies. I know each and every one of you is intentional about who you choose to live beside. Some of the greatest privileges of my life have been to share silliness, laughter, vulnerability, food, smokes, afternoon rooftops, rage, cemetery walks, garden BBQs, fast breaking, hugs, and memories with you. Thank you for always making this weird, quiet lurker feel loved, at home, and worthy.
—Dana Maria Asbury
