Afro-Cuban Theology

Michelle A. Gonzalez

University Press of Florida

This chapter resents a critical examination of the notion of identity functioning in Latino/a theology and religious studies. It analyses the manner in which Latino/a history and identity have been represented and the notions of mestizaje and mulatez as categories for identity, epistemology, and religiosity. It also provides commentaries on the primacy of Mexican-American experience, identity, and religiosity within Latino/a theology.

Keywords:   identity, Latino/a theology, mestizaje, mulatez, Mexican-Americans, religiosity
