Sexuality and race are topics that many don’t feel comfortable talking about. Yet they form part of our daily lives, and trying to ignore them will not help us in dealing with these touchy and sometimes divisive issues in our society. For that very reason, we need more scholarship on them, so we can understand them better and try to untangle their complexities.
One scholar who has spent her professional career researching the issues of sexuality and race is Dr. Shelly Eversley. “Sexuality and race inform perspective,” explains Eversley.
