Southern Spirits Collection of Hoodoo, Rootwork, and Conjure Source Materials
introduction | 19th century hoodoo | 20th century hoodoo | 21st century hoodoo
This bibliography catalogues material about hoodoo that is not influenced in any way by modern popularizations or new attempts to "reconstruct" or "reclaim" hoodoo or to meld it with New Age or Voodoo or Wicca or other belief-systems. Most of the sources date to the era before World War Two (although, in the case of Harry Hyatt's books, the publication date came 30 years after the collection of the material). Both 19th century rural hoodoo and 20th century urban hoodoo are referenced.
The bulk of these entries are extracted from a lengthier bibliography at the end of my book "Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic" (Lucky Mojo Curio Co., 2002). The added notes [in brackets] are new and deal with the provenance of the material.
Additional entries consist of material that was not used as references in my book on herbs but is of general interest to those studying conjure history and practice as it developed during the 19th and 20th centuries. With the exception of my own work, which is documentary rather than innovative in scope, few "modern" sources are cited, due in part to their being 21st century derivations, expansions, or extensions from sources such as these. They should more properly be collected in an annotated bibliography of 21st century hoodoo sources.
In addition to the books and articles cited below, a trove of further extracts concerning hoodoo, taken from longer works, can be found online at southern-spirits.com.
Many of the magazine and journal articles on hoodoo, rootwork, and conjure published during the 19th and early 20th centuries were written by African-American authors. An author's racial or cultural background would not be evident to the casual browser of the bibliography, but i mention it because i wish to make it clear that from the earliest post-Civil War period onward, African-Americans were deeply involved in the documentation of their own culture and did not need to rely on European-Americans to do it for them.

The information published by Misses Herron and Bacon, collected from students at the all-black Hampton Institute in Virginia, is especially valuable.
