Allen Young just brought to my attention this review, by Doug Ireland on The Rag Blog, of Martin Duberman’s dual biography of Barbara Deming and David McReynolds, A Saving Remnant: Two Lives of Courage and Commitment.
From Allen Young:
Doug reviews Martin Duberman’s recently released A Saving Remnant: The Radical Lives of Barbara Deming and David McReynolds
Historian Duberman is known as the father of gay studies, and Deming and McReynolds are “two openly queer Americans who devoted their lives to the struggles for peace and social justice.” Ireland tells us that A Saving Remnant is “radiant with an emboldening and unquenchable humanity.”
Perhaps we should check it out?
