AFST 330 - VODOUN AND AFRICAN RELIGION AND THE NEW WORLD
This course focuses on African religions and their transformation in the New World. West Africans who were brought to Cuba and the other lands of the New World were forced to disguise their ancestral religions and to embrace the church of their captors. This course studies this tradition of Yoruba religion from Africa to Latin America, and the Caribbean, and from the Caribbean to the USA. The embodiment of Holy Voodoo, Santeria, Palo Mayombe, Candomble, Dugu, etc. are living expressions of the African heritage brought from Latin America and the Caribbean to the USA.
