Oppression as Process

Revisionist history or other types of recovery work are commonly considered important steps towards liberation for marginalized individuals and groups. Yet, this volume argues that the mere act of 'breaking the silence' should not solely be seen in line with liberation, but also with the oppressive past that made this recovery work necessary. In order to illustrate the relevance of this insight when implemented in the analysis of concrete cases, this study both conducts such an examination and offers a theoretical framework to disclose the general social dynamics of oppression and liberation. Weaving together the theories of Norbert Elias and Pierre Bourdieu, this volume employs the case of Bayard Rustin (1912-1987), the African-American civil, labor and human rights activist and mentor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., to show that both liberation and oppression are ongoing, interrelated processes embedded in past and present relations of power.
