What spurred the Conjure Academy to share knowledge about Conjure was a heartfelt call from the Ancestors to honor and remember them. Many folks desire to learn about Conjure but they forget the slaves. Some folks want the work but not the history and sorrows that gave birth to this work. Some folks have turned Conjure into a big ballin' where they portray themselves as the be all end all of Conjure work. As far as the Conjure Academy is concerned the Ancestors are the end all be all of Conjure.

Some folks who have started learning conjure especially through the internet are neglecting the ancestors. They want to do the work but not have anything to do with those who fought and died for this work to be here. At the Conjure Academy we are of the creed that the Ancestors are the foundation, heart, and backbone of Conjure work regardless of regional differences, personal flair in one's style of work, et cetera. Without our African ancestors who were brought here against their will Conjure work as we know it would cease to exist. It is our aspiration at the Conjure Academy that all members exalt and honor the ancestors, enslaved and freedmen alike, of American conjure thus remembering their sorrowful plight.

We are led by the Spirit of the Ancestors at the Conjure Academy to shatter the bonds of wilfull ignorance of their memories. We refuse to enchain their spirits in perpetual oblivion by shedding a light on their stories and suffering at the Academy. Honor and Praise to All the Ancestors of Conjure!

In Module two we are going to cover some of the well-known and not so well known folks. If you are going to work within a culture that is not yours then you need to know the history and the folks of that culture. Without interacting with the culture and knowing the folks in it then you are just taking what doesn’t belong to you.

As we saw in Module one there is a lesson in almost everything, from the painting of the porch ceilings to the food that is cooked. There is so much to learn and to understand.  Everything that happen from the beginning of slavery has made this work what it is. The Ancestors have to be honored without them there would be no Conjure it would be something else.

In this Module we will learn more about the folks within this culture. We will learn about working with our Ancestors and much more. It is important to understand the folk beliefs, folk tales and the customs of the South so you can understand the people. Over the period of this course I will do my best to share as much of this culture as I can with y’all.

The goal is to the turn the pages back in time to the days of slavery. Understand the struggles and sacrifices of the Ancestors.

 The phone conference for this Module is 2 hours. One hour the first call and the other hour in the last call.
