A Party for Lazarus is the story of a Cuban family, six generations removed from slavery, struggling to honor their ancestors amid changing fortunes and a crumbling state. It is an intimate portrait of an intergenerational family saga involving the future of an annual feast to celebrate ancestors and orisás--the life-changing spirits at the center of Black Atlantic religious life. Based on twenty years of fieldwork, Todd Ramón Ochoa's masterful ethnography shows how orisá praise and everyday life have changed in revolutionary Cuba over two decades of economic hardship.
