“As Orlando Patterson has pointed out, In every culture it takes generations after emancipation or manumission for the effects of slavery to fade. The corollary to this is a period of “symbolic death,” sometimes marked by stereotypes, representational stagnation, chaos, or structured absence. The realities of the lives of blacks were kept in the shadows, where they continued to be viewed by most of the American public as largely irrelevant to the course of American events and sensibilities.”
