The idea of cultural hegemonies really turned on a couple light bulbs for me as well. As an activist it put into words what so many of us struggle to voice when talking with other activists about why things never change, even when periods of social upheaval come around and look like they are going to shake up the status quo. You aren’t alone Chris. If you do find some authors on the subject let me know. The only thing i can think about is maybe The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexandertouches on some aspects of “White Americas” cultural hegemonies and the interconnectedness (is that even a word?) of various institutions preventing change (though idk if i would exactly say it is what you are looking for)
