Black feminist Audre Lorde would have turned 80 years old today. (She also shares a birthday with Toni Morrison, who turns 83.) Twitter is flooded with tributes, remembrances and quotes from the self-described "black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet," whose contributions to feminism are immeasurable.
