(p.177) Conclusion
Searching for Black Confederates

Kevin M. Levin

University of North Carolina Press

The author concludes by describing some neo-Confederate groups’ adoption of the Confederate flag by terrorists such as Dylan Roof in which they reiterate the false claim that there were Black confederate soldiers. The author says that the Black Confederate narrative will continue to be believed and perpetuated by those who believe it will aid in the positive remembrance of the Confederacy despite a lack of evidence.
