The Dream Is Lost

Julian Maxwell Hayter

University Press of Kentucky

The epilogue demonstrates how the struggle for civil rights continued well beyond the 1970s. It also mentions how the crusade left a lasting impression on politics in the commonwealth’s capital. The epilogue describes contemporary downtown Richmond and the “renaissance” or revitalization the city is experiencing. The epilogue suggests that the struggle for equal rights continues to this day with many African Americans falling below the poverty line, living in public housing, and attending schools with a below-average graduation rate.
