This chapter shows what African American culture in Annapolis teaches us about the conditions of the Americans, and attempts to explain how the African American culture sheds light on slavery, racism, work, equality, and the level to which African Americans were within or lived beyond the ideology of individualism. It shows the challenges posed by archaeology to capitalism, and ends with a discussion of the problem of the individual who acts.
