Voodoo in New Orleans by Stephen Person

In the mid-1800s, Marie Laveau was known as the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans. Voodoo is a religion that mixes African beliefs and traditions with the Catholic religion. During Marie's lifetime, many people believed that she could contact the spirits of the dead to ask for their help. Today, some people say her power lives on. Are the stories true? Look inside to discover what really happened in the mysterious and sometimes spooky city of New Orleans when Marie Laveau reigned as its Voodoo Queen.
