One More River to Cross: Black & Gay in America by Keith Boykin

1997, paperback 

Drawing together interviews with Baptist ministers, gay political leaders, and other blacks and gays on issues of faith, family, and discrimination, and interweaving stories from his own experience with gays and lesbians, author Keith Boykin emphasizes that gay racism and black homophobia prevent the kind of powerful coalition of blacks and gays that can help bring about political and social change.

by portraying the common-ground lives of black gay people, One More River to Cross offers an extraordinary perspective on a community that challenges America's acceptance of all its minorities.
