It is common knowledge that the fault lines of gender and sexuality were far more pronounced and prominent in Black public culture during the post-civil rights era than during the high tide of the Black freedom movement. In recognizing gender as a crucial aspect of discourses of black identity and authenticity in the art, literature, and politics of the Black freedom movement, we will reexamine that assumption. We will draw on secondary sources, as well as a range of primary sources, including government documents, fiction, drama, periodicals, popular music, and visual art-to explore the centrality of gender and sexuality as markers for notions of "authentic" Black identity.
