The conclusion explains how the book informs contemporary race issues in the United States. Specifically, how public memorials of slavery or lack thereof impact how we think about who contributed to the building of the nation. The conclusion also highlights the importance of remembrance and the legacies of history concerning race making. It argues that contemporary racial inequalities must take into account how the study and presentation of history dictates what groups are perceived as worthy of recognition and redress.
