About the event

"Ward draws on over 20 years of contact with Vodou initiates to cut  through the sensationalism, and carefully addresses the misconceptions  of Western practitioners to tell the story of Petwo as the unifying  spiritual and magical impetus to the establishment of the first Black  Republic in the Western hemisphere. From that time onward, Vodou and the  fate of Haiti, both culturally and politically, would be intertwined."
