June Jordan

June Jordan (1936-2002)

Born and raised in New York, June Jordan was a prolific poet, playwright, and essayist. Also a contemporary of queer poets like Adrienne Rich and Audre Lorde, Jordan’s poetry helped push for a more inclusive queer and feminist culture.

Writing from her intersectional identity, Jordan’s work, often politically charged, demands space for her identity as a black, openly bisexual woman.
