dc.description.abstractThis paper will discuss the theoretical and practical applications of an apology for American slavery. It will focus upon former Representative Tony Hall’s 1997 and 2000 request for a congressional apology for slavery. The rhetorical dimensions of the sociopolitical apology in regard to American slavery process will be the primary focus. Three methodologies will be utilized 1) historical materialism, 2) Dialogism, and 3) Living Systems Theory. Each methodology will focus on different aspects of narratives in both African American and European American communities in order to better understand the rhetorical processes that would need to be utilized in order to create a viable and meaningful apology for slavery.en
