Harvey Milk

http://www.ucpress.edu/

Harvey Milk was one of the first openly gay public officials in the United States. His story and tragic death have made him a civil rights icon in the GLBTQ movement.

Up until recently most of Milk's own words weren't widely known with only four of his speeches having been published; at least until now. Jason Black is an associate professor in Communication Studies at the University of Alabama. He is also the editor of "An Archive of Hope: Harvey Milk's Speeches and Writings."
