The Black Folder:
Personal Communications on the Mastery of Hoodoo
By Catherine Yronwode


Conjure Spells for Love, Money, Protection, and Luck; Cursing and Reversing Tricks with Dolls and Mirror Spells; The Secrets of Kitchen Witchery and Grocery Store Magic; Candle and Oil Lamp Magic in the Hoodoo Tradition; How to Make Your Own Mojo Hands, Doll-Babies, and Packet Amulets; Divination and Seership with Bones, Tea Leaves, and Candle Wax.

From 2002 through 2013, the Lucky Mojo Curio Company offered an assortment of informational "shop flyers" to all in-store and mail-order customers, featuring basic information about African American hoodoo drawn from catherine yronwode's book "Hoodoo in Theory and Practice." Meanwhile, from 2008 through 2013, the Missionary Independent Spiritual Church annual Hoodoo Workshops, attendees who came to receive hands-on training in the practice of conjure and other forms of world folk-magic received hand-out flyers describing the spells, recipes, and methods of practice being taught. All of these three-hole-punched information sheets - the Lucky Mojo Shop Flyers and the Hoodoo Workshop Hand-Outs - were then collected together into a black school-report cover - which we called The Black Folder. As the years went on, the content of The Black Folder grew and grew and grew, until there were so many pages that they could no longer easily fit into a single report cover - and so we put together the complete set of all of the past Missionary Independent Spiritual Church Workshop flyers, plus a complete set of all of the Lucky Mojo shop flyers into a 136 page professionally printed BOOK. The name of the book is "The Black Folder" - but don't let the name (or the cover) fool you - it's a regular 8 1/2" x 11" trade paperback book, like nothing else available anywhere. Contributors include an all-star line-up of well-known conjure doctors from around the world: ConjureMan Ali, Deacon Millett, Dr. E., Lara Rivera, Prof. Charles Porterfield, Dr. James Dotson, Khi Armand, Sister Robin Petersen, Sindy Todo, Susan Diamond, Marin Graves, Miss Elvyra Curcuruto-Love, Ms. Robin York, Dr. Johannes Gardback, Michele Jackson, Valentina Burton, Tanisia Mooney, and Catherine Yronwode.

Exu, Divine Trickster and Master Magician
By Denise Alvarado


Perhaps more so today than ever before, people are simultaneously searching for meaning in their lives and grasping for some sort of control over their futures. It should come as no surprise that many look to magick as a means of gaining this control. Ex˙ is a powerful spirit who functions as Divine Messenger and Gatekeeper to the Spirit World. He sits at the Crossroads offering choices and possibilities to humankind. Ex˙ represents balance: day and night, old age and youth, black and white, construction and destruction. He encompasses male sexuality, strength and fertility, and is privy to the mysteries of life and death. Ex˙ is the lord of chaos and trickery, and the keeper of the life force. Nothing can be accomplished in the human world or the spirit world without the permission of Ex˙. He is the one that has the power to break tradition, to question the rules, to breach the norm, and to promote change. He embodies the essence of all of the Orishas and his power is immeasurable. Without Ex˙, none of the Orishas can manifest their power. Ex˙, Divine Trickster and Master Magician is one of Planet Voodoo's Applied Magick Handbook Series. It was written for the uninitiated and is meant to assist the reader in understanding the complex deity and related family of deities known as Ex˙.

The Haitian Vodou Handbook:
Protocols for Riding with the Lwa
By Kenaz Filan


In The Haitian Vodou Handbook, Kenaz Filan, an initiate of the Société la Belle Venus, presents a working guide to the proper methods of interacting with the full Vodou pantheon, explaining how to build respectful relationships with the lwa, the spirits honored in Haitian Vodou, and how to transform the fear that often surrounds the Vodou religion. Until recently, the Haitian practice of Vodou was often identified with devil worship, dark curses, and superstition. Some saw the saint images and the Catholic influences and wrote Vodou off as an aberration. Others were appalled by the animal sacrifices and the fact that the Houngans and Mambos charge money for their services. Those who sought Vodou because they believed it could harness "evil" forces were disappointed when their efforts to gain fame, fortune, or romance failed. Those who managed to get the attention of the lwa, often received cosmic retaliation for treating the spirits as attack dogs or genies. Filan offers extensive background information on the featured lwa, including their mythology and ancestral lineage, as well as specific instructions on how to honor and interact fruitfully with those that make themselves accessible.

Vodou: Visions And Voices Of Haiti
By Phyllis Galembo


Priestesses, zombies, snakes, and swamps ...voodoo, or vodou, is the dramatically symbolic spiritual tradition of many Afro-Caribbean people. It has beguiled and terrified outsiders for centuries, and its rich practices have often been campishly exoticized as the stuff of B movies. In VODOU, photographer Phyllis Galembo shows us the human and divine faces and voices of real Haitian vodou as it is practiced today. Re-released with a striking new cover to coincide with Galembo's photographic exhibition at New York's Albany Institute of History and Art, VODOU is based on Galembo's research and interviews with scores of practitioners and adherents, as well as participation in and witness of numerous vodou rituals. The companion piece to her national gallery tour, this is a beautiful, personal, and intimate document of a fascinating and deeply misunderstood religion.

Conjure In African American Society
By Jeffrey E. Anderson


From black sorcerers' client-based practices in the antebellum South to the postmodern revival of hoodoo and its tandem spiritual supply stores, the supernatural has been a key component of the African American experience. Jeffrey E. Anderson unfolds a fascinating story as he traces the origins and evolution of conjuring practices across the centuries. What began as a mixture of African, European, and Native American influences within slave communities finds expression today in a multi-million-dollar business. Though some may see the study of conjure as a perpetuation of old stereotypes that depict blacks as slaves to superstition, the truth, Anderson notes, is far more complex. Drawing on folklore, fiction and nonfiction, music, art, and oral interviews, he explores various portrayals of the conjurerŚbackward buffoon, rebel against authority, and symbol of racial pride. He also examines the actual work performed by conjurers, including the use of pharmacologically active herbs to treat illness, psychology to ease mental ailments, fear to bring about the death of enemies and acquittals at trials, and advice to encourage clients to succeed on their own.

Voodoo Queen:
The Spirited Lives of Marie Laveau
By Martha Ward


Two commanding Creole women reigned supreme in New Orleans between the 1820s and 1880s, the spiritual leader Marie Laveau and her similarly gifted daughter of the same name. Ward, an indomitable researcher and inspired interpreter, not only tells the entire astonishing and moving story of the two Marie Laveaus but also offers a fresh perspective on Creole culture and voodoo New Orleans style, as Ward explains, was crucial to the survival of African Americans during the grim days of slavery. Official documentation of the lives of Marie the First and Second is scant and confusing, but Ward brilliantly deciphers evidence of the shrewd strategies the Laveaus employed in order to conduct the voodoo gatherings so essential to practitioners and so feared and demonized by the white establishment, and, most critically, to help free slaves. Citing numerous sources new to history books, Ward brings tumultuous 19th-century New Orleans vividly to life as she reveals the true nature of the equally maligned and mythologized Marie Laveaus, devotional, dramatic, and subversive women of otherworldly power and courage who saved numerous lives, and made life livable for many more.

Voodoo:
Mounted by the Gods
By Alberto Venzago


An unprecedented glimpse into the mysterious world of Voodoo, this spellbinding companion to an upcoming documentary produced by Wim Wenders presents photos and film stills by celebrated photojournalist Alberto Venzago. In 1988, he set out to cross Africa on a Vespa. After miles in the blistering heat, it broke down in a remote village in Benin. There he encountered Mahounon, one of the most influential voodoo priests of West Africa. Abandoning his planned trip, Venzago set out instead on an odyssey through the world of African voodoo, to which he and his camera gained extraordinary access. The result is a groundbreaking new documentary and this accompanying book. Venzago followed Mahounon with his camera for nearly ten years, filming secret Voodoo ceremonies and sacrificial rituals. He witnessed Mahounon's extraordinary search for a successor to lead the cult, and he watched as the anointed eleven-year old boy was schooled in black and white magic, rituals, and the intricate workings of the Fa, or Voodoo oracle. Venzago's camera evokes the religious ecstasy of these ceremonies as well as their otherworldly atmosphere. His photographs illuminate this mysterious and potent Voodoo culture and religion.
