“…the deterioration marks the loss of a shared public reality, which is a state we’ve returned to…when we refuse to name a thing in one place, it morphs into another form in order to be recognized…the deliberate absence of coverage of violence against the civil rights movement appears as abrasions, tears, and removals…”
