This concluding chapter likewise contains a eulogy from the other editors of this book, as well as a commentary on the publication history of Barrett's posthumous manuscript. Through discussing the aims of compiling Barrett's work into a “clear, cogent argument” and the emotional forces that had shaped the creation of this volume, the chapter turns to the effects of a lack of closure for Barrett's untimely death. It briefly details the circumstances thereof, while also noting a disturbing trend of several other murders of prominent gay black intellectuals in recent years. The chapter ends on an uplifting note, however, as it closes with some hopeful remarks from the editors on continuing with Barrett's legacy to a tradition of black intellectual engagement.
