Whatever Happened to Interracial Love?

Author(s): Kathleen Collins

Non Fiction

Written in the late 1960s and early 1970s but unpublished in Kathleen Collins's lifetime, these stories transport the reader into a world of civil rights conferences and sit-ins, church rallies and art galleries, where poets, freedom riders and lonely young women wait out hot summers in dingy New York apartments, all wondering: whatever happened to interracial love? Though Collins is now regarded as a pioneering African-American filmmaker and dramatist, her work was largely overlooked and her stories were never published. Collected here for the first time, almost twenty years after the author's death, the stories in Whatever Happened to Interracial Love? reveal a voice that - though it remained unheard for so long - is vital, erotic, compelling.

Product Information

An erotic, dazzling collection of short stories by Kathleen Collins, a pioneering African-American filmmaker and writer whose fiction went unpublished in her lifetime

Born in New Jersey in 1942, KATHLEEN COLLINS was an activist with SNCC during the Civil Rights Movement who went on to carve out a career for herself as a playwright and filmmaker during a time when black women were rarely seen in those roles. Though she is now considered a pioneer, Collins's work was overlooked and forgotten till 2015 when her film Losing Ground premiered at the Lincoln Center as part of a series on African-American filmmakers, and was hailed as a masterpiece. She died in 1988, aged just 46.
