    Marie Laveau

    Marie Laveau

    The Black Power Podcast is a podcast that explores black history, with a particularly interest in the Black Power era of the 1960s. Our first episode is a mini episode in honor of Mardi Gras which happened this past Tuesday and will cover the Voodoo Queen herself, Marie Laveau. I hope you enjoy this mini episode and I want to thank you for joining me. You can find the Black Power Podcast on Soundcloud, Apple Podcast, and Youtube. New episodes will be uploaded every Saturday.
