Editorial Reviews

Review

"Makes vital contributions to the historiography of American sexuality and offers a provocative reinterpretation of black cultural history. . . . Should be mandatory reading for historians of African American history and for a broader audience seeking to gain a fuller understanding of Americans' longstanding debates over black respectability and sexuality." -- "Historian"

Review

Mitchell's work brings together class formation, gendered interaction, and sexual tensions to show the real anxiety the African American minority felt about honest-to-goodness survival. I find this a truly original, thoroughly researched treatment of turn-of-the-century black America.--Deborah Gray White, Rutgers University|Mitchell's nuanced analysis of the politics of racial destiny encompasses a broad spectrum of social projects and activists. . . . [She] has painstakingly uncovered the authors, social networks, texts, and cultural artifacts of a relatively unknown body of social thought.--American Historical Review|Michele Mitchell has written a deeply thoughtful and intellectually adventurous study that demonstrates the importance of gender and sexuality to the developing discourses of 'racial destiny' and black nationalism. In so doing, she offers a significant perspective, not only on African American life, but also on American society in the post-Reconstruction era.--Steven Hahn, University of Pennsylvania|Makes vital contributions to the historiography of American sexuality and offers a provocative reinterpretation of black cultural history. . . . Should be mandatory reading for historians of African American history and for a broader audience seeking to gain a fuller understanding of Americans' longstanding debates over black respectability and sexuality.--Historian|Breathing new life into a familiar narrative, Mitchell's 'social history of ideas' offers more breadth and depth than intellectual histories of race leaders. . . . By tackling the most sensitive aspects of racial reform--imperialism, eugenics, and female sexuality--she has done us a great service.--Journal of American History|Recommended.--Choice
