CLASS: From the Streets to the Sheets: The Sporting Life in Hoodoo

Come with us as Professor Porterfield parts the velvet curtain that conceals the life, times, and history of the sporting life. The demi-monde world of the night and the other side of the street the sporting life has played its part in hoodoo, conjure, and rootwork.

In this class the good Professor will take you into the underworld beliefs and secret practices of the sporting life showing the impact that it has had on the world of magic and spirituality. From the prostitutes of the Bible, the working girls of Storyville and Memphis, the high-stakes bettors, the magnetic madams, the persuasive pimps, the cagey corner dope dealers, and members of the oppressed lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, and transgender communities of color this class will startle your senses and thrill your heart.
