Stop with the X, Get with the Checks: Save Marie Laveau’s Tomb!

Stop With the X, Get with the Checks: Save Marie Laveau’s Tomb photo by Lilith Dorsey

Back in December of 2013, the tomb of Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau in St. Louis Cemetery Number One was painted “Pepto dismal” pink in an act of vandalism. A strong power wash was used to remove the paint, resulting in some serious damage to the tomb. This sacred Voodoo site is the second most visited grave in the United States. Hundreds of thousands of people have made the pilgrimage to leave offerings and to salute this Voodoo legend. Much more helpful than leaving X marks on the tomb, donations are being made to support the restoration of the site. Here’s a short video I made showing the damage and pointing you to the place to donate. Thanks for your support!
