Zora was in Jamaica and Haiti in 1937. Her research is irrefutable. She describes the life and culture of the Africans in Jamaica. The Jamaican African's culture differs from the American Africans. The women are looked upon differently in both cultures. The differences are interesting. Haiti is interesting and intriguing. Voodoo and the other customs are compelling. Whatever your view of voodoo is, Zora will fill any voids. I learned a lot about the diaspora.
