Heritage is the full range of our inherited traditions, monuments, objects, and culture. Most important, it is the range of contemporary activities, meanings, and behaviours that we draw from them. Heritage is important both in terms of appreciating those who have paved the way for us through Civil Rights activism, but also in-terms of embracing our racial, ethnic, and cultural differences. Cultural heritage implies a shared bond, and a belonging to a community. It can represent our history and our identity; our bond to the past, to our present, and the future.
