This book tells the often-unrecognized, but important, story of how African religions have shaped faith in America. Mary Ann Clark explores the cultures of three African kingdoms that contributed significant numbers of their population to the Atlantic slave trade, then examines how each may have influenced contemporary American beliefs and culture.
Mary Ann Clark is the author of several books, including Santeria: Correcting the Myths and Uncovering the Realities of a Growing Religion, and has been interviewed in publications such as the L.A. Times and the Houston Chronicle. She is an independent scholar, teaches at Yavapai College, and lives in Prescott, Arizona.
