religions of Black diaspora communities in the Americas. The nature of Africana
Religions, their adaptation and expression in North America, South America, and the Caribbean will be discussed. African-American conjure traditions, the emergence and role of African-American led churches and African-American expressions of Islam from the time of enslavement to today will be explored.
