Nipsey Hussle’s Memorial Was a Celebration of African Spirituality – Broadly

From Dr. Diane Stewart (quoted in the article): “African heritage religions provide a continued kinship relationship with your departed family members and [show] that death is a doorway to continued life. There is an invisible community of deities and spirits that operate and have power, that emphasizes the healing of individuals and social experience and relationships. That ritual, which we saw as a simple pouring of water, is intended to keep those passageways open between the visible and invisible world”

 

During the memorial service for Eritrean-American rapper Nipsey Hussle, his mother Angelique Smith emphasized how her spirituality helps her deal with grief.
