Mama Black Widow tells the tragic story of Otis Tilson, a stunning black drag queen trapped in a cruel queer ghetto underworld. In hopes of escaping the racial bigotry and economic injustice of the South, Otis’ family journeys north from their plantation to an urban promised land. Once in Chicago, Otis and his siblings become prisoners to a wasteland of violence, crime, prostitution, and rape. This is the gut-wrenching tale of the destruction of a family and the truest portrayal of homosexuality in the ghetto ever told.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Remarkable…It ain’t pretty, but Slim’s bracing ghetto melodrama and famously histrionic voice capture a core of unsentimental truth not just about homosexuality in the ghetto but also about the myths and travails of masculinity itself.”

About the Author
Author Iceberg Slim

Iceberg Slim (1918–1992), a.k.a. Robert Beck, was born in Chicago and initiated into the life of the pimp at age eighteen. At age forty-two, after several stints in jail over the years, he gave up the life and turned to writing. He was catapulted into the public eye as a new American hero, known for speaking the truth whether that truth was ugly, sexy, rude, or blunt.
