Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A police raid on the Stonewall, an unlicensed Greenwich Village gay bar, set off a series of riots in the summer of 1969 that mark the birth of the modern gay and lesbian political movement. Duberman (Paul Robeson ) re-examines this event through the vibrant, intertwined portraits of six people -- two lesbians, three gay men, one transvestite -- whose lives converged at the Stonewall Rebellion and in the militant movement it spawned. Politically, his six subjects run the gamut from ex-priest Jim Fouratt -- a leftist and Yippie cohort of Abbie Hoffman -- to Foster Gunnison, who devoted his energies to moderate gay causes and later became a conservative. Yvonne Flowers, a black feminist, overcame her suspicion that the gay movement was not open to people of color, while transvestite Sylvia Rivers faced hostility from lesbians. Duberman, himself gay, exposes schisms in gay liberation that pitted gay men against lesbians, male chauvinists against feminists, whites against blacks.
Library Journal
Historian Duberman, author of Cures: A Gay Man's Odyssey, chronicles here the Stonewall riots that occurred in New York City during the summer of 1969. Involving gays and lesbians who fought back against a police raid at a Greenwich Village bar, these street battles marked a watershed event in gay and lesbian rights in this country. Duberman's work is a combination of biography and history that is primarily viewed through the words of six participants (four men and two women) who were either at the Stonewall riots or involved in the gay and lesbian politics of the time. It is often a powerful and compelling narrative that shows how an oppressed minority arrived at a historic moment and changed forever the way they would view themselves and how others would view them.

    Going to where it all began!

    Stonewall is an emotional voyage to a past I was not able to witness for myself. The characters are merged together telling the WHOLE story of the "always heard about" Stonewall and of many men and women who because of their determination changed society and culture forever. I highly recommend reading Stonewall.
