Afro-Cuban Theology: Religion, Race, Culture, and Identity

Afro-Cuban Theology: Religion, Race, Culture, and Identity by Michelle A. Gonzalez
English | Sep. 29, 2006 | ISBN: 081302997X | 209 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

The first book to compare Cuban American and African American religiosity, Afro-Cuban Theology argues that Afro-Cuban religiosity and culture are central to understanding the Cuban and Cuban American condition. Gonzalez interprets this saturation of the Afro-Cuban as transcending race and affecting all Cubans and Cuban Americans in spite of their pigmentation or self-identification. Building on a historical overview of the intersection of race, religion, and nationhood, the author explores the manner in which devotion to La Caridad del Cobre, popular religion, and Cuban letters inform an Afro-Cuban theology.

English | Jan. 1, 2006 | ISBN: 0791462846 | 161 Pages | PDF | 2 MB
