Ezili Mapyan

Ezili Mapyan

Ezili Freda and Ezili Dantor have autonomy over their sex lives. They sleep with whom they want; they reject those they do not desire. Not everyone is so fortunate. Ezili Mapyan is a spirit in the guise of an enslaved woman. Her master raped her, and so she killed him. She is a powerful spirit of rage who is invoked by those seeking revenge and justice.
