Show Summary Details


This chapter considers the question of what happens to the members of oppressed cultures—or lifeworlds—within capitalism. It focuses on the African American culture, attempting to show how the African Americans in Annapolis made many lives for themselves, and examines the number of excavations that were done in Annapolis in order to literally unearth more information about this culture. The chapter also considers the independence of the blacks and the features of African culture that survive in Annapolis today.
