Abstract

The complex notion of cultural heritage can be ascribed different connotations in the context of inheritance and identity. Cultural assets can be construed as valuable gifts handed down through generations which sustain as historic souvenirs of an ever-changing ethnic identity. This paper deliberates upon the intricacies of African-American cultural inheritance and identity in Alice Walker’s Everyday Use.
