    I would like to know if you all can recommend books or even links on African spirituality. When i research it i normally run into a plethera of topics but they discuss it with the assumption that you know WTF they are talking about. They talk about orishas and what not as though brothas on the corner discuss that all the time. " Oh yeah orishas! I love me some orishas" smh. But seriously, Yoruba and other systems are fine. Thanks i appreciate it.

    Hopefully I can chime in on this also....
    check out blogtalkradio (dot) (com) (slash) kamau301
    This is my show called AFRIKA'S REASCENTION. I have quite a few on the subject

    Also another great 1 I love is Bro. AMACHI's show...if you go to blogtalkradio & just throw his name in the search engine, his archived shows will appear. This brotha's depth of Afrikan spiritual knowledge floors me constantly.

    If it is specifically Ifa you are looking for, there are quite a few shows again on blogtalkradio...but the main 1 I like is Omo Oduduwa Radio (type into search field there).
    A great book on Akan spirituality is The Quest For Spiritual Transformation: Introduction to Traditional Akan Religion, Rituals and Practices by Nana Akua Kyerewaa Opokuwaa.
    A great 2 part book on Igbo spirituality is AFTER GOD IS DIBIA by J.A. Umeh

    & if need be I can get you some good journal articles on the subject as well
    (Afrikan spirituality is an area of specialty of mine as well).
    Hope these help your search

    Follow the link to my collection. I have two more on the same site. Let me know if you search the site and find something interesting. I might be able to download it and then post the file with you here instead of you having to pay for site membership.

    peace!
