This volume considers the interface in which slavery, memory, citizenship have been intertwined. The full rights and responsibilities associated with citizenship confront the legacy of slavery, the persistence of racism and the ways people want to remember past wrongs that affect the lives of people in the present. Indeed achieving full citizenship also has to overcome what people don't want to remember about the past because of the inconvenience of knowing the truth and the difficulty of adjusting attitudes and social relationships.
