Juan Battle and Sandra L. Barnes, eds.

Black Sexualities: Probing Powers, Passions, Practices, and Policies
(Rutgers University Press, 2009)

While acknowledging the diversity of the black experience and the shared legacy of racism, contributors to this volume seek a resolution to blacks’ understanding of their lives as sexual beings. Through stories of empowerment, healing, self-awareness, and other historic and contemporary life-course panoramas, the book provides practical information to foster tolerance and acceptance as well as more research. Juan Battle (Prof., GC) is on the doctoral faculty in sociology, public health, and urban education.
