Brujas: The Magic and Power of Witches of Color

Brujas: The Magic and Power of Witches of Color

"I was first introduced to Lorraine’s work via the Witch Wave Podcast and was fascinated by her work surrounding witchcraft and spiritual practice in the Latin American and Afro-Caribbean communities. Brujas: The Magic and Power of Witches of Color is part memoir, part research project and part spell book. It doesn’t matter if you’re new to the Craft or have been practicing for years, Brujas is an essential guide to understanding the roles of capitalism and colonization in Spirituality and witchcraft. It also encourages you to enrich your practice with spells and rituals at the end of each chapter. I loved this book!"

"Brujas, Witches of Color are ancestral magical beings and the world we live in has tried to silence our voices. . . . This book is such a beautiful tribute to the different stories and experiences we go through as brujas. . . . Amplify the voice of Witches of Color by reading their stories." Juliet Diaz, author of Witchery and Plant Witchery

There is a new kind of witch emerging in our cultural consciousness: the bruja.

Witchcraft has made a comeback in popular culture, especially among feminists. A growing subculture of BIPOC witches, led by Afro-Caribbean immigrants, Indigenous Americans, and other witches of color, is reclaiming their ancestral traditions and contributing their voices to the feminist witchcraft of today. Brujas chronicles the magical lives of these practitioners as they develop their healing arts, express their progressive politics, and extend their personal rituals into community activism.

They are destigmatizing the “witch” of their ancestries and bringing persecuted traditions to the open to challenge cultural appropriation and spiritual consumerism. Part memoir, part ritual guide, Brujas empowers readers to decolonize their spiritual practices and connect with their own ancestors.

Brujas reminds us that witchcraft is more than a trend—it’s a movement.
