Title: Black on Both Sides: A racial history of trans identity
Author: C. Riley Snorton
Publisher: Minnesota University Press
Black on Both Sides identifies multiple intersections between blackness and transness from the mid-nineteenth century to present-day anti-black and anti-trans legislation and violence. Drawing on a deep and varied archive of materials, C. Riley Snorton attends to how slavery and the production of racialized gender provided the foundations for an understanding of gender as mutable.
