This is a recording of Judy Simmons interviewing Audre Lorde during a late-night show on WBAI in New York. In this recording, Lorde reads selections out of her book The Black Unicorn, and the two women converse with listeners who call in to discuss poetry, differences between men and women, being African-American, and other topics. Possibly an episode of Simmons's program "On the real side," which aired on WBAI between 1979 and 1981.
The end of the recording is cut off.
