BWS 311 - Black Spirituality

3 hours
The African worldview has produced a particular set of assumptions about reality. This collective consciousness about reality informs the way African people speak about and interact with seen and unseen elements. The African worldview distinguishes black spirituality from other religious and spiritual traditions. This course will delineate the African world view, and it will make inquiries into the similarities and common themes found in some of the major black spiritual traditions (Vodou, Ifa, Ausarian, Akan, Izangoma, charismatic black churches, and Rastafarian).

This course will satisfy the multicultural core requirement.
