Description

In Feeling the Spirit, esteemed photojournalist Chester Higgins, Jr. tells the story of a people - by capturing the fierce dignity, enduring traditions, and empowering spirituality that live in all men and women of African descent throughout the world.Higgins' odyssey of discovery has spanned three decades and led him across boundaries of geography, nationality, and culture. He has visited the sites of ancient civilizations, joined in religious celebrations rarely open to outsiders, and experienced private moments both joyous and heartbreaking with families and communities in more than thirty countries in North and South America, the Caribbean, Africa, and Europe. Now, in these pages, Higgins combines 220 images with his own evocative prose to share the findings of his extraordinary journey.From reclaiming a long-misrepresented history, to providing an intimate look at sacred rituals passed down through the centuries, to exploring the simple yet profound significance of water in daily life, Feeling the Spirit paints a vibrant collective portrait of the African identity as it thrives not just in Africa, but in all parts of the world.show more
