Marie Laveau: Witch or Saint?

Marie Laveau: Witch or Saint?

Marie Laveau was THE Voodoo Queen in a city overrun with purported doctors and queens. Today we’re separating fact from fiction about both Marie and voodoo. Was she a witch or a saint? When you actually get into the nitty gritty of her life and dig deeper than the many exaggerated stories about both the woman and voodoo itself, what you find is actually not spooky at all – it’s a story of mercy, generosity, and serious hustle.Storical will be a little less frequent for the next few months as I’m undergoing some health treatments.
