VOODOO MEN, HOODOO WOMEN & ROOT DOCTORS...say they know how to use eggs, graveyard dust; forks in the road; the numbers 3, 7 and 9; pins and nails; red flannel bags; yellow homespun; urine, feces and blood; shoes and clothing; black cats and black hens; doorsteps; and the interior and exterior corners of houses to conjure good and to conjure evil.
