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.

Hoodoo Voodoo

This is fine British poetry, pure and simple.

Hoodoo Voodoo is D.S. Marriott's second full-length collection and his first with Shearsman Books. In powerful works that interrogate what it is to be black in a majority white world, and indeed marginalised in any world, that call up unheard voices from the past that still need to speak to us today, Marriott gives us a poetry that we need in Britain today - perhaps more than the US: a poetry that merges the native modernist tradition with an infusion of 'negritude', and does not follow the easy narrative road. This is fine British poetry, pure and simple. That it happens also to be Black British poetry, for those who like easy classifications, is perhaps a bonus, but it is the work itself, not its source, that demands attention, and on its own terms.
