In the midst of New York's many faiths and religions, this fascinating account brings to light the little known and little understood West Indian spiritualism. It interjects into records of Caribbean life, focusing on the Caribbean community in New York City. It examines their complex belief systems and discusses links between Haitian history, spirituality and its present social and political situation and assists in lifting the veil of pretence that attends these practices in the multi-cultural society of Trinidad and Tobago and in the Caribbean Diaspora.
