A Saving Remnant is a brilliant dual biography of two of the most fascinating twentieth century gay political activists: Barbara Deming and David McReynolds.
When Barbara Deming and David McReynolds first met in the early 1960s; each was deeply engaged with many of the critical issues of their day. An American feminist, writer, and political activist with a deep and lasting commitment to non-violent struggle, she was repeatedly jailed for her participation in nonviolent protests and traveled to Hanoi in 1966 to see for herself what the war looked like. The first openly gay man to run for President of the United States, on the Socialist Party ticket, he devoted his life to peace and justice, working for forty-five years as the “intellectual backbone” of the War Resisters League in NYC. Born on opposite coasts twelve years apart in 1917 and 1929, they were left-wing radicals who also happened to be gay, and whose paths crossed at different points based on their common political concerns.
The prize-winning biographer and historian Martin Duberman brings their stories – and the story of their times – vividly and movingly to life.
