Yale University Press. White Women, Black Men is the first book to explore the history of one of the most explosive categories of illicit sex in American history. Striking at fundamental understandings of race and sexuality, Hodes demonstrates that only with the advent of black freedom after the Civil War did sex between white women and black men provoke extreme white alarm. Following the upheaval of war and emancipation, transgressors were targeted by the Ku Klux Klan in a pattern of violence that culminated in unprecedented white terrorism by the end of the century.
Martha Hodes. New Haven: Yale University Press, In , a minister of the Gloria Dei Church in Philadelphia refused to marry an interracial couple. Nevertheless these frequent mixtures will soon force matrimonial sanction. It is hard to believe that it was only a generation ago that the Supreme Court invalidated state laws prohibiting racial intermarriage. At the time the Court issued its Loving v. Virginia decision, 16 states barred marriages across racial classification altogether, 41 states, at some point, enacted anti-miscegenation laws.

One night in Sydney, I was a little taken by a year-old woman in a gay bar. A mutual friend introduced us, and we proceeded to have a curious conversation about color — or as she would have said, colour. She was a chatty and congenial Aussie, with a distinctive no-bullshit edge. There are too many of those in Sydney… and Cape Town… and New York City… and pretty much everywhere with thriving gay nightlife!
