A Struggle for Heritage

Chapter 3 examines the history of people of color on Long Island. It argues that race relations worsened through time shifting from a time of an intercultural creole synthesis to a more alienating time of racial modernity. The chapter consists of three parallel studies that illustrate this transformation: a study of the artwork of William Sidney Mount, a study of the representation of people of color in Long Island newspapers, and a study of residential racial segregation in the Town of Brookhaven.
