Resistance, History, and Civil Rights

(p.248) 6 Conclusion
A Struggle for Heritage

Christopher N. Matthews

University Press of Florida

Chapter 6 provides a reflection of the findings of the book. A story of recent resistance to the marginalization of people of color in the community provides the framework. Resistance to white racism and appropriated histories are a framework for understanding how people of color claimed their civil rights for the last two hundred years. The chapter concludes with a proposal for an affirmative action program in the heritage industry.
