Editorial Reviews

Review

"My American Historypowerfully conveys the emotional intensity, spirit and sense of crisis during the Reagan/Bush years. And it illuminates many of the tensions and obstacles that continue to face LGBTQ, feminist, racial justice and progressive movements. … My American History is amazing to read today because it shows the deep connection between contemporary progressive movements and their historical antecedents."
Urvashi Vaid, community organizer and attorney, CEO of Vaid Group LLC, author of
Irresistible Revolution: Confronting Race, Class and the Assumptions of LGBT Politics (2012)
