Reviews

The book is an amazing reference that gives historical context of Black America around some of the most taboo subjects in our history.--A&U Magazine


Indispensable for those who reject the erasure of black queerness in American civil rights history.--The Guardian


It's easy to say that Mumford speaks the truth to power throughout Not Straight, Not White--because he does. Yet, a more nuanced treasure that Mumford gifts us with is a methodology for intimacy--to discover how in our closeness, throughout our vulnerabilities, and by articulating our failures we can (and must somehow) arrive at the love we all, each one of us, so desperately need.--CLA Journal


A wonderful primer for understanding the cultural context of and many important figures in black gay history.--American Literature
