Dispelling Vodou myths: Fi2W on Deutsche Welle

Rachel Bongiorno’s story Beyond a Religion: Vodou Connects Haitians to their African Roots from our recent issue, United by Faith, has been reworked as a radio piece for Deutsche Welle, Germany’s international broadcaster. You can also listen to the story in English at the Deutsche Welle site. Enjoy!

This story is part of Immigration Lab, a partnership between Feet in 2 Worlds and media serving immigrant audiences in the New York metropolitan area. Support for Immigration Lab comes from The New School for Public Engagement. Fi2W is supported by the David and Katherine Moore Family Foundation, the Ralph E. Odgen Foundation, and the Nicholas B. Ottaway Foundation.
