What Can and Can't Be Said: Race, Uplift and Monument Building in the Contemporary South (Book)
Title: What Can and Can't Be Said: Race, Uplift and Monument Building in the Contemporary South
Author: Dell Upton
Abstract: What Can and Can't Be Said is a study of a select group contemporary monuments to the civil rights movement and African-American history erected in southern cities since the 1980s. It argues that, more than simple exercises in historical memory, these monuments are powerful expressions of black claims to a presence in the political and public landscapes of the contemporary South. The book also considers the ways that the continuing presence of white supremacist monuments and white supremacist attitudes shapes the form and reception of the black monuments.
