review The Stonewall Riots ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ocuments Marc Stein presents a uniue record of the lessons and legacies of Stonewall Drawing from sources that include mainstream alternative and LGBT media gay bar guide listings state court decisions political fliers first person accounts song lyrics and photographs Stein paints an indelible portrait of this pivotal moment in the LGBT movement In The Stonewall Riots Stein does not construct a neatly uilted streamlined narrative of Greenwich Village its people and its protests; instead he allows multiple truths to find their voices and speak to one another much like the conversations you'd expect to overhear in your neighborhood bar Published on the fiftieth an. When we discuss an event from history most of us think we are talking about an objective truth about what happened However even if we are eyewitnesses to that event because we each bring our individual life history to it we cannot see or understand it in the same way Then when we include the passage of time that event takes on even new interpretations and thereby creates new memories During June 1969 hundreds if not thousands of persons participated in a multi day protest riot following a police raid of the Stonewall Inn at 53 Christopher Street in New York City This was not the first physical confrontation between LGBT persons and police but it has come to be identified as a defining moment in US lesbian gay bisexual transgender ueer LGBT history and a key moment in the history of civil rights and social change in this country It has become a symbol of resistance to oppression of the dispossessedAuthor Marc Stein Professor of History at San Francisco State University states that even though it is impossible to go back in time and know exactly what happened it seems likely that Some aspects of the uprising were spontaneous and unprecedented The homophile movement of the 1950s and 1960s and its radicalization in the second half of the 1960s created the preconditions for revolt The long history of bar based resistance practices created a repertoire of rebellious responses Other social movements provided revolutionary inspiration and influence And the combination of heightened expectations and dashed hopes that many felt as the country transitioned from a period of liberal reform to one of conservative backlash and that LGBT people experienced in the context of a new wave of police raids violent killings and local vigilantism created an explosive situation that erupted on 28 JuneFor this reason this large collection of 200 mostly primary documents documents from the moment about the Stonewall Riots and events preceding and following the last days of June 1969 is important Here before layers of interpretation are added secondary sources and time and emotion make it harder to see the objective reality we can read texts written by people immediately affected And even though each document reflects the individuality of the person creating it we can read multiple accounts from multiple perspectives and thereby come closer to what happened One need not be LGBT to appreciate this collection of police reports news articles maps photos gay bar guides and accounts by persons present Rather than create a cohesive account of Stonewall and its aftermath Stein has chosen to avoid interpreting the event and allowed us to see the messiness of history Therefore anyone interested in how we view and do history and in how we create social change will likely find this book fascinating Music and Messaging in the African Political Arena you'd expect to overhear in Be an Anthropologist your neighborhood bar Published on the fiftieth an.

review The Stonewall Riots ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Niversary of the moment the first brick or shot glass was thrown The Stonewall Riots allows readers to take stock of how LGBT life has changed in the US and how it has stayed the same It offers campy stories of ueer resistance courageous accounts of movements and protests powerful narratives of police repression and lesser known stories otherwise buried in the historical record from an account of ball culture in the mid sixties to a letter by Black Panther Huey P Newton addressed to his brothers and sisters in the resistance For anyone committed to political activism and social justice The Stonewall Riots provides a much needed resource for renewal and empowerme. I remember reading about the riots that weekend in 1969 Since then I ve read seen other historical works concerned with the events that took place This book caught my interest as it seemed to be than just a timeline history The book traces events which occurred before Stonewall through the uprising itself and into the following few years The document style in which the book is written reminded me of being in a museum having the objects on display and having to read the little plaues which explain each item Many of them here were interesting some less so I admit I did skim uite a bit through them While I did enjoy the book I think if you re looking for a history of the event there are others that might be better

review The Stonewall Riots ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free On the occasion of its fiftieth anniversary the most important moment in LGBT history depicted by the people who influenced recorded and reacted to it June 28 1969 Greenwich Village The New York City Police Department fueled by bigoted liuor licensing practices and an omnipresent backdrop of homophobia and transphobia raided the Stonewall Inn a neighborhood gay bar in the middle of the night The raid was met with a series of responses that would go down in history as the most galvanizing period in this country's fight for sexual and gender liberation a riotous reaction from the bar's patrons and surrounding community followed by six days of protests Across 200 d. Thorough Well Researched Essentialtl dr One of the best books I ve read about StonewallAt the precipice of the 50th anniversary American is both incredibly different from the culture of the 60s and sadly very similar Stein creates a well written book balancing academic research with easy to read text His premise is to lay out the evidence to allow the readers to make their decisions I appreciate this approach because so much of our culture is based on siloed knowledge In the end I found myself with a deeper understanding of Stonewall as not just the first moment of revolution but situated in a transforming society Stein s book is the best book of Stonewall that I have read
