A 100-page compilation book of songs, articles, rituals, and collages that are related to West African-based spirituality (specifically voodoo, hoodoo, brujeria, and santeria). Focuses on how people of color today can work with these practices to heal, self-empower, and challenge racist narratives that exist around the subject.

All text excluding the introduction and editor’s note were collected by me through research. I fully designed and printed the book and made the included collages by hand. Measures 8.5 x 11 x 0.5 inches.
