American Brujería Latinx On The Rise

    • Society & Culture

As American Latinos/as/x we grew up with a little hint of magic. Growing up I was told brujería was bad but my mother and grandmother both did limpas on me. They believed and warned against, 'El Mal De Ojo.' When my little sister had a full conversation with my deceased grandfather, my mother totally believed her. 

It wasn't until I was older that I realized, I too was raised by brujas. Today, I interview J.Allen Cross, the author of American Brujería. A book that is dedicated to all of us in between, two countries, two cultures and spiritual practices.
