About the event

A name, a title, a curse oft hurled at others in fear, aimed to destroy, disempower, and subjugate. It has meant many things to many people: scorn and scandal, empowerment, and freedom. However, within the context, community, and culture of hoodoo and southern conjure it has a more precise and deliberate meaning.

Join Professor Porterfield for a spell as he dares controversy and curse to take us along back into the 'hollars and the hills' to examine what the "witch" and "witchcraft" are within hoodoo and southern conjure.

This class is a pre-curser to Professor Porterfield's Live Things In You: The Infamous Curse Work of Hoodoo, Rootwork, & Southern Conjure class at 1pm. For information & registration click HERE.

About the Presenter:

Professor Charles Porterfield is an old-fashioned, no-nonsense, Old Testament reader and rootworker. He is the co-author of Hoodoo Bible Magic: Sacred Secrets of Scriptural Sorcery, and author of A Deck of Spells: Hoodoo Playing Card Magic in Rootwork and Conjure and The Sporting Life: How to Help Yourself with Hoodoo from the Streets to the Sheets. He writes, teaches, and lectures on hoodoo and conjure to help preserve and pass on the roots of the work as well as consults, prescribes, and divines work for those in need. He currently lives in Denton, Texas with his wife, legacy student, one cat, and a dead dog.
