On Conformity to the Category of Time (Race)
This chapter summarizes key themes and presents some final thoughts. This book has attempted to demonstrate that America continues to suffer from the immaterial dimensions of the legacy of slavery and ongoing racial subjugation it claims with great difficulty. The preceding chapters worked in concert to elucidate the affective claims of the history of slavery and ongoing racial subjugation through a theory of cultural melancholy. In writing thw book through a close reading of American and African American literatures and cultures, it is hoped to reveal a culturally and historically specific paradigm that explains how unresolved racial grievances are transmitted transgenerationally by way of ritual practice, and uncover a paradigm for understanding racialized subject formation that is simultaneously individualistic and interpersonal.
