This course examines some of the ways in which Òrìṣà religion and philosophy can serve as a resource for renewing and empowering the African diaspora. Focusing mainly on the African American, we consider aspects of Black agency that employ African religio-cultural elements to either enhance or inform Black struggle. In a real sense, Black struggle has always been informed by ethical and moral directives such as social justice, equality, and societal harmony. This course will also examine Òrìṣà practice as a means to re-identify with Africa—that is, it facilitates a renewal of cultural identity.
