Working through oral traditions, this book illustrates the importance of spirituality and the family in African-Caribbean culture. The author shows how inter-generational conversations, where elders share personal experiences and reflections from their life with young people, encourage, inspire and educate the younger generation and contribute to their sense of identity.The authors approach can be applied in different cultural settings and both outlines and affirms an active role for older people in the community.

It also provides useful historical background on the migration of people coming from the Caribbean to Britain. Containing case studies, it is a practical and reflective resource for religious professionals, social workers and anyone seeking to understand the meaning of religion and faith for todays British African-Caribbean society.
