Notes:
309 p., Offers a corrective to some of America's institutionalized invisibilities by delving into the submerged networks of ritual performance, writing, intercultural history, and migration that have linked the coastal U.S. South with the Caribbean and the wider Atlantic world. Draws from Haitian Vodou and New Orleanian Cuban and South Floridian SanterĂ­a,and Afro-Baptist (Caribbean, Geechee, and Bahamian) models of encounters with otherness.
