African Heritage Traditions in the Diaspora: An Introduction - Dr. Tracey Hucks and Dr. Dianne M. Stewart
This presentation will offer an introduction to African heritage traditions and their long legacy within the Americas and the Caribbean. Although they share many features with all the major world religions, within the context of slavery and its aftermath, African heritage traditions experienced an extensive history of violent repression, legal criminalization, and colonial persecution. Hucks and Stewart will provide an overview of the salient features of African heritage traditions; their uses for spiritual defense and healing; their connection to diaspora movements of ancestral reclamation; and the contemporary phenomena of white participation and presence within them.
