The Slave Journey to an Afro- Baptist Faith

Trabelin' On: The Slave Journey to an Afro- Baptist Faith,

Sobel, Mechal.

A study of the religious history of slaves and free blacks in antebellum America. The author's central thesis is that Africans brought their world views into North America where under the hardships of slavery, they created a coherent faith that preserved crucial African understandings regarding spirit and soul-travels, and melded them with Christian understandings.

(1988), 317pp., softbound
