This oddity of locution — black people calling their magical practice hoodoo and white people calling it Voodoo, as if by doing so they could convince black folks that rootwork is a West African or Haitian religion — is clearly noted in Zora Neale Hurston’s important book on the subject, “Mules and Men,” published in Hurston was an African American folklorist with a fine ear for dialect who also wrote a book on Haitian Voodoo “Tell My Horse” , so she spoke with authority when she referred to her subject as “Hoodoo, or Voodoo, as it is pronounced by the whites.
Now, it could be argued that Hurston was from Florida and that she preferred the word hoodoo to Voodoo, even though the latter was the more common term in New Orleans — but such an idea can definitely be countered by referring to an interview that Ferdinand “Jelly Roll” Morton, an African American Creole native of New Orleans and a famous jazz musician in his own right gave to the folklorist and musicologist Alan Lomax of the Library of Congress in Morton, who was quite conscious of the recording of the interview and its historical importance, went out of his way to explain many local idioms and turns of speech to Lomax, who was a white man basically ignorant of such matters.
When Morton began describing to Lomax why a multiple murderer in New Orleans was never prosecuted, he interrupted the flow of his own words to explain his terminology to Lomax. I don’t mean with funds, or anything like that. Money wasn’t really in it. As I understand, she was a hoodoo woman. Examples of this error are too numerous to mention; they can be found everywhere in printed folklore studies and on the world wide web.
Furthermore, in collecting old African American songs about hoodoo, two things are quite apparent: For a clear example of this, see the lyrics transcriptions of two different recordings of “The Mojo Boogie” by J. In African American communities along the Eastern seaboard, the word “witchcraft” is often used as a synonym for hoodoo. While the work described is more African than European in character, the terminology follows the old British sense of the word, wherein “witchcraft” is viewed as both a healing art and a harmful activity.

Rizzo sculptor disappointed with move But whether it stays or goes, one thing is certain: Philadelphia is digging out at least some of its buried history and bringing into the open what had previously been consigned to racial oblivion. Next month, one of the singular examples of the rediscovered — educator, activist, and ballplayer Octavius V. Catto — will be honored by the city where he was murdered with a full-blown sculptural commemoration in bronze and granite on the southern apron of City Hall.

Public Domain From approximately to AD, a number of city-states on the eastern coast of Africa participated in an international trade network and became cosmopolitan Islamic cultural centers. The major autonomous, but symbiotic, city-states stretched over 1, miles from Mogadishu in modern day Somalia in the north to Sofala in modern Mozambique in the south and included Mombasa , Gedi, Pate, Lamu, Malindi, Zanzibar , and Kilwa.
Each of these cities evolved from agricultural villages that produced goods on a small scale. Over time, these villages intensified their small-scale agricultural economies to create surpluses for trading. This shift also changed the structure of the society of these villages as more wealth created an elite merchant class. The new prosperity elevated some agricultural villages into towns and cities, while others were founded to capitalize on the opportunities sparked by the growing Indian Ocean trade.
These city-states also exported natural resources. Local merchants gathered ivory from the south, gold from the western interior and frankincense and myrrh from northern Africa. Kilwa, Pate, and Mogadishu also developed a local textile industry while Kilwa and Mogadishu extracted copper from nearby mines. All of the states produced pottery.

From the early days of slaveholding until today, when the last five mayors of Atlanta have been African Americans, the story of the largest southern city can be told through the experiences of its largest ethnic minority. The majority of African Americans were originally brought over from Western Africa and Madagascar as part of the slave trade between and Charleston, South Carolina, became the major southern port where African Americans were introduced to the lower south.
By an estimated , Africans or people of African descent lived in British North America, comprising nearly 20 percent of the total colonial population, mostly concentrated in the southern colonies. In Georgia and South Carolina the wealthy planters drew upon the skills and knowledge of African Americans brought from Senegambia to aid in the cultivation of rice, which was the first major export crop of these southern colonies.
The slave trade from Africa was halted by the U. Congress after January 1, , and in the North the gradual abolition of slavery took place. In the South, economic factors, notably the invention of the cotton gin in , kept the institution alive.
