Weekly Roundup - 06/03/24

This week: We are publishing June Jordan’s 1993 tribute to Audre Lorde, reflecting on their joint struggle in the ’60s student protests, with an introduction by Alexis Pauline Gumbs.

Four years on from the police killing of George Floyd—and the beginning of the Minneapolis uprising—we are sharing two pieces from the archive: a dispatch by managing editor Nathan Goldman and culture editor Claire Schwartz from the first week of protest in the Twin Cities, and Hannah Black’s essay on the history and potential of Black–Palestinian solidarity.
