Synopsis: To create art that impacts the heart and mind of the community requires a vision. Realizing that vision is a lifelong journey. You must prepare yourself for the longgame, the longrun. Be religious about it. Superstitious.
- Arthur Flowers, MOJO RISING
An extraordinary memoir that chronicles not just a life, but also an entire belief system, Mojo Rising follows the enlightened path of an African-American philosophical and spiritual firebrand. A modern-day hoodoo man working his "mojo"-the empowerment of black souls-through the cultivation of hoodoo practice, Arthur Flowers continues a tradition birthed by Zora Neale Hurston and Ishmael Reed. With academic and emotional vigor, Mojo Rising fosters the transformation of hoodoo into a twenty-first century afrospiritual ideology and literary framework.
Unflinchingly honest, passionate and ever conscious of his role in the complex evolution of black society, Flowers fuses scholarship and soul-searching into this progressive literary riff.
