The Black Madonna of East Thirteenth Street

The Black Madonna of East Thirteenth Street. Good article by Joseph Sciorra from the magazine of the New York Folklore Society, from back in 2004.

Although a very focused look at the veneration of a Black Virgin among NY's Sicilian immigrants, it includes a few well-considered introductory comments about the phenomenon in general.
