Product Description

Review

"A mature and brilliant study that provides the basis for theory and method for the study of religions of African derivation in the New World."--Charles Long, professor emeritus, Department of Religious Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara, and series editor, Religions of the Americas Series





"An insightful and engaging ethnography of a significant religious tradition in America. The scope and details are unsurpassed by previous works on the subject. The interdisciplinary focus enables it to speak to several theoretical issues in the Humanities and social sciences. . . . A major contribution not only to the study of African, African American, and diaspora religion but also to comparative history of religions, anthropology of religion, and cultural studies."--Jacob K. Olupona, professor of African Religious Traditions and African American Studies, Harvard Divinity School



"An invaluable contribution to scholarship of the Oyotunji community, to scholarship of African American religion, and to scholarship of the phenomenon of American religion more generally. Hucks ably relates a history that is central to an appreciation of the roots and varieties of contemporary African American religiosity."--Rachel Harding, Department of Ethnic Studies, University of Colorado, Denver

--This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Inside Flap

Alongside the story of Nana Oseijeman Adefunmi's development as an artist, religious leader, and founder of several African-influenced religio-cultural projects, Hucks weaves historical and sociological analyses of the relationship between black cultural nationalism and reinterpretations of the meaning of Africa from within the African American community.
