Summary: Blessed Anastacia is the first detailed ethnographic account in English of Brazilian black women's encounter with racism within the context of popular religion. Revealing the many-layered reality of black consciousness in urban Brazil, John Burdick teases out the ways that popular Christianity confronts everyday racism and contributes to the formation of black identity.

Through life histories, cultural analysis of media and television, in-depth participant more observation, and over a hundred interviews with working-class black women, Blessed Anastacia offers a complex, searching examination of the role of anthropology in movements for social change.
"...a brilliant, passionate study of the realities of race and injustice in Brazil...represents the very best in new thinking from anthropology and cultural studies about Latin America."
--Orin Starn, author of Nightwatch: The Making of a Movement in the Peruvian Andes

"...charts out new territory by examining racism in the context of Afro-Brazilian activism, popular religion, and the cultural politics of gender and desire. Avoiding simple formulas and always attentive to complexity, Burdick has produced both a nuanced ethnography and a contribution to theories of social movements and activist scholarship."
--David J. Hess, author of Samba in the Night: Spiritism in Brazil less
