Abstract:

"Showcasing the work of literary giants like Langston Hughes, James Baldwin, Audre Lorde, Alice Walker and writers whom readers may be surprised to learn were "in the life," Black Like Us is the most comprehensive collection of fiction by African American lesbian, gay and bisexual writers ever published. From the Harlem Renaissance to the Great Migration of the Depression era, from the postwar civil rights, feminist and gay liberation movements to the unabashedly complex sexual explorations that followed, Black Like Us accomplishes a sweeping survey of twentieth century American literature."--Back cover.
