Susheel. Heritage of Power. 84 pages.
A biography on Pleasant with the latest research on her mentor,
Marie Laveau. The book also details their much-misunderstood,
indigenous faith, Vodou. Thus, Heritage of Power, centered
on Pleasant's life and how it she became the Mother of Civil
Rights in California, solves three sets of mysteries—those
about Pleasant, LaVeau, and Vodou. Heritage of Power
contains landmark research, so you can now know the latest
about all three.
Details: An eighty-four, beautifully, illustrated coffee-table
book, Heritage of Power is referenced and perfect bound.
It also contains a magnificent praise poem on Marie LaVeau
called Congo Square by renowned women's spirituality author
Luisah Teish! You won't want to miss this one. Did the woman
of mystery, Mary Pleasant, meet New Orleans'most famous Voodoo
queen, Mam'zelle Marie LaVeau? Did she receive a "Heritage
of Power" from her? If so, what was it and what was its source?
Heritage of Power is the first to establish the connection
between Pleasant and LaVeau and to reveal the social model
forged by Marie LaVeau. It fully demystifies the lives of
both women and their religion and explains how Pleasant took
what she gained in New Orleans and applied it in California.
