In History: Audre Lorde and Toni Morrison

This is the 65th post in a weekly feature here at Spare Candy, called "In History." Some posts might be little more than a photo, others full on features. If you have any suggestions for a person or event that should be featured, or would like to submit a guest post or cross post, e-mail me at rosiered23 (at) sparecandy (dot) com.




As it so happens, two literary giants were born on this day: Toni Morrison (top photo), who turns 80, and Audre Lorde, who was died in 1992 at age 58. Both of these women have made a huge impact on many, many people. Do yourself a favor and read their works, and read up on their lives.

Happy birthday to them!!
