Erasing Public Memory confronts the unacknowledged and uninterrogated assimilation of racial categories into aesthetic theories. The editors and contributors based much of their analysis on exposing the phenomenon that race and racism is at the very center of knowledge production in the academy, a process designed not so much to achieve a disinterested will to epistemological thresholds of truth, but to invent a racialized meta-rationality to the exclusion of all alternative ways of knowing.

Between 1788 and 1834 black Baptists formed their first distinctively black congregations and organized regional associations. By 1831, when an enslaved Baptist preacher named Nat Turner inspired an insurrection against slaveholders in Virginia, black Baptist had acquired “a peculiar and precarious religious freedom.” Turner’s rebellion and the black Baptist role in ending slavery in Jamaica brought restrictions on the movements of black preachers, but black Baptists continued to preach and to claim the freedom to worship as communities of believers.
