Then We'll Sing a New Song is a fascinating examination of how
African religions have shaped belief and practices in America. Not
just the story of the development of African American religions or
the black church, this book tells the often-unrecognized, but
important story of how African religions have shaped religion in
America more broadly. Mary Ann Clark introduces readers to the
cultures of three African kingdoms that contributed significant
numbers of their population to the African slave trade, and also
profoundly shaped religion in America--the Kingdom of Kongo, the
Oyo Empire, and the Kingdom of Dahomey. Each of these groups has a
unique history within the long history of the Atlantic slave trade
and interacts with the Americas at a specific point in history.
Clark shows how each may have had an influence on contemporary
American beliefs and culture, sometimes in surprising ways. The
book features a glossary, timeline, and maps.
