In the past, (and even now to a certain extent) I have feared what type of judgements I would get for speaking out loud about African religions, like “Voodoo”. This religion has been so twisted, mocked, ridiculed, lambasted and derided, that we often fear being made a mockery of when we still are curious about it. Or should I say me?
I was and am curious in spite of all the negativity, and have decided to overcome my fear and start studying this aspect of my African culture. It’s a shame that I have to fight shame just to learn, but I’m ready to do so.
