This chapter considers what it might mean to make race and class more central in our interpretations of the court's rulings on sex, marriage, and reproduction during the period commonly associated with the sexual revolution. At the same time, the chapter asks what it might mean to make sex, marriage, and reproduction more central in our interpretations of rulings typically classified as decisions about race. This chapter questions how race influenced the Supreme Court's decisions on cases that pertain to sex, marriage, and reproduction during the height of the sexual revolution and in a wider context looks into what happens when race and sexuality become the organizing principles in our investigation of the twentieth century.

Keywords:   court rulings, Supreme Court, U.S. Supreme Court, sexual revolution, race, sexuality, court decisions
