AFRICAN RELIGIONS: ZULU ZION | 51 Minutes
The Zulu Independent Churches in South Africa. When Christian missionaries took the Gospel to Africa they also tried suppress African religion and subvert African culture with their own. But since World War I, and with increasing vigor in the last 20 years, Africans have been rediscovering their lost religious identity and have been forming independent churches with their own festivals, prophets and rituals and greater or lesser devotion to Christ.
