The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 (2011) dir.Göran Olsson
“This whole, kind of, falling in love with black things for a short period of time is essentially racist. It still is hypothesized on a great sense of separateness and a sense of treating black activities as a kind of curiosity; either benign or threatening, one or the other. When it’s threatening, ‘Oh my god, they’re going to riot or something’. And if it’s benign, ‘Let’s let them paint or draw or sing or dance, whatever they want to do. Until we, the white community, get tired of it’ and that whole structure, is essentially racist.”

Haitian Vodouisant drawing a veve near Port au Prince.  
Veves, not too unlike sigils, are a visual expression of the energy being invoked.  In this way, they are also a form of invocation themselves…as a visual welcome sign for the Lwa.  They are typically formed with cornmeal and are prayed over, chanted over, drummed over with movements…rum and sometimes Florida Water and the like in a supreme act of devotion to the spirit invoked.
