African Traditional Religions as resistance: What would the Ancestors do?
"The Ancestors way of teaching"
About this Event
From worshipping the ‘devil’ to keep white folks away, to unmanageable and murderous young women, this talk explores where agency, autonomy and identity challenge slavery and asks what these forms of everyday resistance can teach us about our own relationship to these legacies.
