9781479113262: Voodoo, Hoodoo and Slave Magic: A Study Guide: Interviews with Slave Practitioners

Recollections of Hoodoo, Voodoo and other tales of American Slave Folklore as told by the slaves themselves. "The way we tell it, hoodoo started way back there before everything. Six days of magic spells and mighty words and the world with its elements above and below was made." Hurston. 1935. Mules and Men. In hoodoo, "All hold that the Bible is the great conjure book in the world." The Bible, however, is not just a source of spells but is itself a conjuring talisman. Hoodoo, also known as conjure, and its practioners as conjurers or rootworkers, is a type of folk magic developed by African American Slaves. It is not a religion as it has no hierarchy or clergy and is tied inextricably within Christianity with the bible as its main source of spells and magic. Its practitioners are usually found within the Christian community and their Hoodoo knowledge is passed down orally from generation to generation. Voodoo is a religion. Hoodoo is a system of magic and spells. They are different, yet can be complementary. Taken from the hundreds of slave interviews carried out by the Federal Writers Project.

About the Author:

Chattel slavery, also called traditional slavery, is so named because people are treated as the chattel (personal property) of an owner and are bought and sold as if they were commodities. It is the least prevalent form of slavery in the world today. An estimated 12 million Africans arrived in the Americas from the 16th to the 19th centuries. Of these, an estimated 645,000 were brought to what is now the United States. The usual estimate is that about 15% of slaves died during the voyage, with mortality rates considerably higher in Africa itself in the process of capturing and transporting indigenous peoples to the ships.
