Black Magic

Black Fantasy dwells in its own realm, it is supposed to be based on our beliefs, depictions and history but too often we rely on a eurocentric way of thinking when it comes to casting and conjuration. I created this group to discuss why?

Il Seperato: a shadow figure

Started by Virginia L Small Dec 29, 2015. 0 Replies

Does anyone know about Il or Ij Seperato or Separato? It is the physical embodiment of the separation of light from darkness. I found information a few days ago but now I cannot find it. Continue

How do you feel about the way "Voodoo” is treated in Pop Culture?

What do you think when you hear the word “voodoo”?  Zombies?  Superstition? Spirit possession?  Even those of us who respect this spiritual tradition will tend to think of these things when the word…Continue

Can a 'near death experience' bring forth magic in a character?

When it comes to African mythology it is not mythology because these spiritual and supernatural forces are REAL and are still being accessed. Books that you would get info from would be reference books. One of the best information books is WEST AFRICAN SECRET SOCIETIES. It holds a lot of good info on these secret societies and their belief systems.

I'm working on a sword & socrery story. When I first wrote it......{not published}.....I followed the Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter concept. But showing it to a publisher. He wanted to buy it, but to my shock, it was onl for the characters I created, not for the story. He wanted to change them all around. Turning my main character Gay, And the other character white. I couldn't do it........I cut my wrist open and bled out my heart and soul into these characters. I left saying there was NO way I was going to let that happen......So now I'm looking at publishing myself. What do you guys think? Was this the right choice?

I agree with Brother Milton. When I did research for my first sword and soul story, I discovered that Voudon was actually a religion where the saints of Catholism became Haitan/African. It's fascinating because when "Voodoo" is portrayed by white media it's almost always negative.

By the way Bushmama Africa, you should check out "The Horsemen" series by Jiba Anderson . He models his characters after the Orishas.

I'm working on some stories dealing with Alusi (Igbo deities) that will be set in modern times

i would love to help create a comic book dedicated to Orisha and the powers they have using the stories we already know about them but add them to current themes. I saw one video about Ogun and Oshun in comic book form on youtube did any of you see it?

Product Review Updates #2

Posted by Stephen Alexander on June 22, 2018 at 9:06am 0 Comments

Occasionally, I will alert fellow members to product updates by creators I have reviewed in the past year or so.

  • AfroFiTV has released an interesting trailer for Tyranny. It looks like he'll be putting up new episodes this year. Check out the trailer if you want to see some recent SFX work of his. https://youtu.be/TcvFoNohK-k
  • Iam Bennu, artist and mastermind behind The Sunhawks, has completed more works in the series that still look delightfully weird. Here's the link at Comixology

Who owns the Harlem Renaissance?

Posted by Turtel Onli on June 22, 2018 at 8:26am 0 Comments

Who owns the rights to most of the material, books, and music, and  posters sold to school systems annually to expouse the values of the "Harlem Renaissance"? Are these publishers and distributors as Black as the content?  Do due royalties go to the hires or estates of the folks served up as creative or historic icons?  Or are these source of revenue leeching massive profits away from the community being educated?

This processing of "the New Negro" is still making money .....but for whom?

Not to mention how this nexus of schools, publishers and distributors, which tends to avoid indie Black owned operations, and pimps Black Culture when it comes to the money.…

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
