To some, the witch is a figure to fear; to others, she’s one of empowerment. She is the healer, the medicine woman, the bruja, the Mother, the crafty Instagrammer.

The theme of "witchcraft" has long been associated with exoticizing portraits of a "traditional" Africa, but this volume takes the question of occult as a point of entry into the moral politics of some very modern African realities.'.
