‘High John the Conqueror Ain’t Got Nothing On Me’ at Rush Arts Philadelphia

Fabiola Jean-Louis, Marie-Antoinette Is Dead

A. M. Weaver finds the group exhibit at the new Rush Arts Philadelphia a treat and suggests we all get up there and see it. The theme show involves artists working in the Southern black folk magic tradition of Hoodoo, and the show’s title references an herb called High John the Conqueror to which is ascribed magical powers.
