Hoodoo, which you should not confuse with voodoo, is a spiritual practice that developed in the Mississippi Delta around the 1930s. If you’ve ever heard of the nineties alternative band The Root Doctors, its from this that they got their name. The delta was the home of a large concentration of slaves from West Africa which brought with them their cultural and spiritual principles that formed the belief. Think of it as a sort of hybrid of traditional African folk magic possibly stemming from the voodoo religion of Benin and Togo mixed with Native American cultural traditions and European spiritual practices.
