Traditional, African, Religious, Freedom?

(p.89) Chapter Seven Traditional, African, Religious, Freedom?
Politics of Religious Freedom
Rosalind I. J. Hackett
University of Chicago Press

This essay describes the active resistance to both Christian and Islamic efforts in sub-Saharan Africa to exclude the indigenous religious traditions of Africa from legal protection. African traditional or indigenous religions are often not acknowledged as “religions” due to a lack of centralized structure and leadership. Hackett explores the legal prejudice African religious practitioners encounter both locally and internationally.
