Post-Soul: Post–Civil Rights Considerations in the 21st Century

(p.249) Afterword
Black Cultural Production after Civil Rights

Robert J. Patterson

University of Illinois Press

This essay examines how the essays in the volume offer a post-soul aesthetic and how the politics of the contemporary moment underscore the progression-regression paradox and the need for pragmatic political imaginative possibility. In other words, it explains what the 1970s cultural productions reveal about not only our understanding of the past, but also how those musings can help us to understand the contemporary moment as well.

Keywords:   21st century, post-soul aesthetic, historical memory, black futurity, racism
