Sinopsis:

"We are Africans not because we are born in Africa, but because Africa is born in us. Look  around you and behold us in our greatness.  Greatness is an African possibility; you can make it  yours. " -- Chester Higgins Jr.

In  Feeling the Spirit, Chester Higgins Jr.  tells the story of a people -- by capturing the fierce  dignity, enduring traditions and empowering  spirituality that live in all men and women of African  descent throughout the world. Higgins' odyssey of  discovery has spanned three decades and led him  across boundaries of geography, nationality, and  culture. In these pages Higgins combines 220 tri-tone  black-and-white images with his own evocative  prose to share the findings of his journey. From  reclaiming a long-misrepresented history, to providing  a rare, intimate look at sacred rituals passed  down through the centuries, to exploring the simple  yet profound significance of water in daily life,  Chester Higgins Jr. presents a glorious evocation  of the African personality as it thrives not just in Africa, but in all parts of the world.
