VR Tours on Soul of Africa
Welcome to the 360 degree exhibition of the SOUL OF AFRICA Museum from Essen, Germany.
In the exhibition "Voodoo Rainbow", the spread of religions from West and Central Africa through the transatlantic trade with enslaved Africans is explained in more detail by Henning Christoph, director of the SOUL OF AFRICA Museum. Religions, such as the West African Vodun, intermingled with the religions of other enslaved people, the beliefs of indigenous populations, and the Christianity of European colonialists. The SOUL OF AFRICA Museum shows the origins of various religions on the African continent and resulting diaspora religions from Cuba, Haiti and Brazil. Furthermore, the topic of slavery is highlighted.
The SECRETS exhibition of the SOUL OF AFRICA Museum was a special exhibition that opened on September 28, 2019 at the SOUL OF AFRICA Museum in Essen, Germany. In this digital version of the exhibition, the 7 secrets that Henning Christoph discovered in Africa and in the African Diaspora between 2004 and 2019 can now be seen online.
