More About Stonewall by David Carter
 
 
 
Overview

The basis of the PBS American Experience documentary "Stonewall Uprising."

In 1969, a series of riots over police action against The Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City's Greenwich Village, changed the longtime landscape of the homosexual in society literally overnight. Since then the event itself has become the stuff of legend, with relatively little hard information available on the riots themselves. Now, based on hundreds of interviews, an exhaustive search of public and previously sealed files, and over a decade of intensive research into the history and the topic, "Stonewall: The Riots That Sparked the Gay Revolution" brings this singular event to vivid life in this, the definitive story of one of history's most singular events.

A Randy Shilts / Publishing Triangle Award Finalist

"Riveting...Not only the definitive examination of the riots but an absorbing history of pre-Stonewall America, and how the oppression and pent-up rage of those years finally ignited on a hot New York night." - Boston Globe
