MOJO by EDITOR NALO HOPKINSON

Summary

An extraordinary collection of original stories that draws on African magic and lore, written by the finest SF and fantasy writers and edited by the award-winning author of Brown Girl in the Ring. When enslaved people were brought from the western part of Africa to the Americas, they were forbidden to speak their native languages or practice their religions in the New World. But their folkways survived as underground beliefs, and, in the crucible of slavery, created systems of magic and herbal lore with a particularly West African flavor. MOJO draws on the talents of writers who have a reputation for the sensitive, imaginative use of folklore and folkways in their work.
