Sacred Journeys: Osun Osogbo

Description

The African American Research Collection is pleased to present a screening of the documentary Sacred Journeys: Osun Osogbo and discussion with featured scholar and priestess Funlayo E. Wood, Ph.D. The film follows African American devotees of Orisa-- divine spirits brought to the Americas by enslaved Africans--on a journey to the Osun Festival in Osogbo, Nigeria. Known by many names including Lukumi, Santeria, and Candomble, Orisa devotion has grown to become one of the most popular religions in the world.
