Religion is one of the most important elements of Afro-Caribbean culture linking its people to their African past. From Haitian Vodou and Cuban Santeria–popular religions that have often been demonized in popular culture–to Rastafari in Jamaica and Orisha-Shango of Trinidad and Tobago. In Afro-Caribbean Religions, Nathaniel Samuel Murrell provides a comprehensive study that respectfully traces the social, historical, and political contexts of these religions.
