Starting Dec. 11th @ 7pm, I’ll be be teaching a series of lectures and workshops on hoodoo, rootwork, and Southern African-American Conjure at Catland Books in Brooklyn, NY!
The description reads: “Hoodoo – also known as “rootwork” and “conjure” – is a tradition of practical magic grounded in the African-American experience of the Southern USA and magical techniques of the Congo.
With a comprehensive materia magica and syncretic practices borrowed from American Indian herbal medicine, Jewish mysticism, Pennsylvania Dutch pow-wow, and East Asian lore, Hoodoo remains the only magical tradition unique to the USA.
So, how does one get their mojo workin’? Did Tommy Johnson really sell his soul to the Devil at the crossroads…and can you? Is your nature tied? Are you sanctified…or did somebody lay tricks in your tracks?
Lecture Fee: $10
