The Many Gods of Yoruba Lore

In recent years we have seen a very welcome uptick in the number of fantasy books inspired by West African folklore. The Afrofuturism and Africanfuturism movements have paved the way for Black authors across the diaspora to build worlds and tell stories influenced by their heritage, allowing wider audiences to finally meet the spirits of Yoruba lore. But who are these deities, and where do they come from?

Glad they did a piece on Yoruba spirituality, but the pronunciation was atrocious. I can forgive them that once, but they do need to do better.

OBT is Now ImageR Social

100% Pro-Black period. I ain't explaining shit.Update your bookmarks and start your new account. OBT Social is making big changes, and one of them is a new platform: ImageR Social.

The new layout is more up to date and image forward. I don’t know for certain yet, but I suspect this will be an even better replacement for “YT” than it was before.

If you were on OBT, you will need to make a new account at ImageR, but they will import your content. So get over there and sign up.
