From the visionary mind of artist King Khan comes the Black Power tarot.

Using the mystic language of Tarot, Khan chose 22 Black American people who he felt followed a true path of illumination despite being born in a country so corrupt and vehemently against them.

Khan studied the Tarot over a decade and was given a deck of the Tarot de Marseilles by Alejandro Jodorowsky while he visited him at his home. Jodorowsky's personal teachings paved the way for Khan to understand the Tarot much deeper than ever before. The mission of the Black Power Tarot is to add a heavy dose of surrealistic mythos to American history by replacing the archetypes of the major arcana with the chosen people, thus giving the world a new deck.

Khan shared this vision with Belfast artist, Michael Eaton who then came up with the drawings. Khan provided him with many specific design instructions to stay true to the sacred geometry of the Marseilles deck, so this deck could be used in the same way. Khan then presented the drawings to Jodorowsky for approval. Jodorowsky approved 17 of the 22 cards in the first round. Khan & Eaton made the proper changes to the 5 remaining cards until they finally received Jodo's blessings and the supreme honour of being two of his spiritual warriors.

From this maelstrom of blood, sweat, and genius, The Black Power Tarot was born — Allen Ginseng
