Description

To either achieve or resist domination, some postcolonial and post slavery societies appropriate and contest the current memories on slavery. This occurs more often where the sites of slavery are tourist attractions that positively empower the communities through economic benefits, resulting in an emergence of ‘new’ memories of the past and a constant construction and reconstruction of identity. In The Legacy of Slavery in Coastal Kenya: Memory, Identity, and Heritage, Herman Ogoti Kiriama examines how two communities in coastal Kenya, one whose identity is contested by the community members and another one who are seeking recognition, have tried to remember their past and the role that tourism has played in the process of remembering and or forgetting.

Kiriama argues that heritage, memory, and identity are fluid and individuals can claim several identities depending on their socio-politico-economic context
