Audre Lorde: From “Sister Outsider”
And of course I am afraid, because the transformation of silence into language and action is an act of self-revelation, and that always seems fraught with danger. … In the cause of silence, each of us draws the face of her own fear–fear of contempt, of censure, or some judgment, or recognition, of challenge, of annihilation. But most of all, I think, we fear the the visibility without which we cannot truly live.
