    schema:reviewBody ""The creation of memorials dedicated to the Civil Right Movement is a watershed event in the commemoration of Southern and American history, an important reversal in the traditional invisibility of African American within the historic preservation movement. As the authors suggest, collective memory is certainly concerned with respecting the past. But collective memory is also associated with the ongoing campaign for civil rights and the economic challenges presented by heritage tourism." "Owen Dwyer and Derek Alderman examine civil rights memorials as cultural landscapes, offering the first book-length critical reading of the monuments, museums, parts, streets, and sites dedicated to the African-American struggle for civil rights and interpreting them is the context of the Movement's broader history and its current scene. In paying close attention to which stories, people, and places are remembered and which are forgotten, the authors present an engaging account of an unforgettable story."--Jacket." ;
