What is historian Jacquelyn Down Hall’s research question? What is the argument of this essay? What is Hall telling us about historical memory? And, according to Hall, what doe political “ New Right” have to do with how we remember civil rights history? What is “color-blind conservativism”? How does she explain the limits of the New Deal?  What is the chronology of this “long civil rights”? What about its spatial or regional dimensions?
