Another World is Possible : Spiritualities and Religions of Global Darker Peoples Paperback / softback

Description

'Another World is Possible' examines the many peoples who have mobilized religion and spirituality to forge identity.

Some claim direct links to indigenous spiritual practices; others have appropriated externally introduced religions, modifying these with indigenous perspectives and practices.

The voices of Black people from around the world are presented in essays ranging from the Indian subcontinent, Japan and Australia to Africa, the UK and the USA.

From creation narratives to trickster heroes, from the role of spirituality in HIV positive South Africa to its place in mental health and among the poor, spirituality is shown to be essential to the survival of individuals and communities.
