about this book

One More River to Cross etches an insightful and provocative portrait of a largely invisible, often denied presence in American life-black gays and lesbians. Against the historical backdrop of civil rights and the black experience in America, Boykin interviews Baptist ministers, gay political leaders, and other blacks, gays, and lesbians on issues of faith, family, discrimination, and visibility to determine what differences-real and imagined-separate the black and gay communities. One More River to Cross challenges students to reexamine America's acceptance of its racial, and sexual, minorities.
