It is Better to Speak - Audre Lorde Quote Art - Inspirational Social Justice Home & Office Decor


This colorful print features the powerful words of Audre Lorde from her poem "A Litany for Survival:"

"When we speak, we are afraid our words will not be heard nor welcomed. But when we are silent, we are still afraid, so it is better to speak."

This piece will remind everyone who sees it that there is great power in speaking our truths - no matter what we face! Frame this piece to display boldly at home, in your office or in your local community center; or gift it as inspiration to your favorite radical heart!


♥ Available Sizes: 5x7" ~ 8x10" ~ 13x19" (*side note: while the smaller sizes read well, I think this print has the best impact in the 13x19" size due to all the text!)

♥ You will receive one art print on gallery quality Luster Photo Paper WITHOUT the frame or matting.

♥ Borderless design as pictured above (without the Radical Hearts watermark!).

♥ Please note that the color of your physical print may vary slightly from how it appears on the computer monitor/mobile screen.

♥ This item will be securely packaged (with love!) and shipped in a protective plastic sleeve with stiff support to make sure your print gets to you safely! For additional information, please review our shop policy section:
