Born of Blood and Fire - Richard Ward
On 27 January we are delighted to host an online event with Richard Ward, who will present his latest book "Born of Blood and Fire" (Scarlet Imprint). This book is a study of the origins, history, practices, evolution and influence of the Petwo rite that was pivotal in the Haitian slave revolution.

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."
