Black Like Us: A Century of Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual African American Fiction

Black Like Us: A Century of Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual African American Fiction - Devon W. Carbado, Dwight A. McBride, Donald Weise, Dwight McBride, Don Weise, Evelyn C. White As with most anthologies, it's a mixed bag. The historical essays were great for setting up the context, but then the inclusion of stories written before 1950 was very slim, and not much more before 1980 either. I also wish there had been more short stories and fewer novel excerpts (especially ones depicting graphic rape and on-page gay bashing leading to death). However, I also found a lot of great new-to-me authors, and revisited some old favourites.
