Sacraments of Memory’s conclusion affirms the contention that Catholicism operates as a site of oppositional discourse in contemporary narratives of slavery, wherein alterative ways of remembering the past are realized. It reminds the reader, however, that these “sacraments of memory” should never be considered unproblematic or pure modes of dissent. Rather, they remain deeply conflicted discursive strategies.
