What you'll do

After an explanation of New Orleans burial customs, we give a brief overview of Voodoo, featuring Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau's tomb, exploring the realities and myths of this curious phenomenon. Learn about its ancient West African religious basis and the crossovers it made with Roman Catholicism in slave-holding colonies. From chess champion Paul Morphy to civil rights pioneer Homer Plessy, and from the tombs of French Impressionist Edgar Degas’ family and actor Nicolas Cage to the New Orleans Musicians Tomb and the notorious Easy Rider film site, hear the humorous, tragic and inspiring stories of legendary New Orleanians.
