      A great anthology to own and read. it covers a wide variety of African American LGBTQ genres, from erotica to science fiction. The writer presents overviews of different eras and the prominent writers of that era. This book helps to answer any question about the contribution of queer literature in the main literary world. To have African American and LGBTQ within the same bracket is a bold move, but the reality is there are and there has been a group of African American, even Caribbean American [...]

      This book was incredible, full of excellent stories from a century of brilliant writers. I appreciated the introductory backstories about each of the writers, which inspired me to look up many of them and seek out other things they've written. I loved the diversity of stories that were included, covering a wide range of genres, styles, and emotional impacts. I would highly recommend this book.As it is a significantly lengthy anthology, I enjoyed working my way through it over the course of about [...]

      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.

      So much in this, definitely something to read twice.

      The work done to contextualize and introduce the collected work is phenomenal. This is an amazing resource for students of Black lgbt/quare/queer subjects who seek to get a grasp on intuitional and cultural formations related to Black quare subjectivity and (artistic) production. You may already know the primary work but the commentary within this text is impactful.

      The contextualizing essays at the beginning of each section were informative and interesting. The quality of the stories varied--it was nice to have excerpts from canonical works alongside lesser known authors. But I'm finding it slow going and am returning it to the library for a while. 6 June - 5 August 2012

      Great book, many of the stories really good, some were sad and others were just okay. It's a must read.

      This is like an anthology of lgbt related stories by some noted Authors of color. It's been a while since I read it, but from what I remember, it was GREAT.

      strange excerpts that really only give a skewed glimpse of the whole stories. I see why they packaged it, but I don't like how it was done.
