Hoodoo Tarot

The man is walking away from the tomb of Joshua John Ward of Georgetown County, South Carolina. Ward was the largest American slaveholder, dubbed “the King of the Rice Planters.” The man is carrying a mason jar filled with dirt…The free man has what every great rootworker has always had: the courage to follow their calling, despite the possible consequences, and an unshakeable faith that made the courage possible. (26-27)
