Today's most distinguished writers and acclaimed new voices present extraordinary fiction on homosexuality in the lives of African Americans. Featuring America's long-celebrated authorsJames Baldwin, Audre Lorde, Alice Walker, Richard Wright - as well as the works of a new generation of critically heralded writers, including Sapphire, Jacqueline Woodson, Charles Harvey, Go the Way Your Blood Beats brings together a family of literary fiction that examines Black lesbian and gay identity, from inside the closet and out. Through thirty-two stories, nearly half in print for the first time, writers from the Harlem Renaissance to the present examine such issues as homophobia, bisexuality, AIDS, cross-dressing, and accepting one's self.
