Abstract
This thesis explores the representations of Blackness constructed and embraced by Saadakeem Papa Kyriakos, the prophet and leader of the Church of Cristo Kyrios, a marginal organization located in Lima, Peru. Saadakeem proudly claims to adhere to the religion practiced by plantation slaves in Peru in the sixteenth century. This thesis presents and analyzes some of Saadakeem’s divine messages about slavery as well as the images of Black men he creates, adopts and employs to symbolize the sacred Black figures the Church worships. This thesis contends that Saadakeem’s representations of Blackness not only exclude women, but also reinforce deeply entrenched racial conceptualizations that depict Black men as mindless, primitive and sexual bodies.
