Abstract
In this piece, introducing the January 1998, panel on "Race and Sexual Orientation in Legal Scholarship" at the American Association of Law Schools conference, Professor Cox reflects on her own scholarship, concluding that "[w]e need to change the whiteness of gay and lesbian scholarship...to eliminate a notion that, when we talk of issues concerning gay and lesbian liberation, we are only talking about liberating white people from the heterosexism of our society."
