“The Journey”Death and the Afterlife in Afro-Caribbean CulturesIs an immersive exhibition that explores the traditions surrounding death and the afterlife within three Afro-Caribbean cultures. The thesis shows how the exhibition will create a space for visitors to delve into the traditions of the Creoles, Orisha and Garifuna peoples and how those traditions are believed to transition the soul and, more importantly, encourage acceptance of the inevitability of death through the celebration of life. The paper discusses the opportunities and challenges presented by staging a temporary exhibition in the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.
