There is a film about Marie Laveau in pre-production.

Born in 19th century New Orleans, Marie Laveau was on path to lead the life of a typical free woman of color. Facing loss and uncertainty, she relies on her faith and determination to redefine her position in society, becoming one of the most powerful women of her time. 

Directed by Charles Foster Jolivette.

My Instagram photos from my trip to New Orleans! I saw voodoo relics and historical sites, met witches, conjurers, and voodoo priests, learned about Marie Laveau and the birth of jazz, explored Catholic churches, and experienced magic. Such a spiritual city with kind people all around. I had a great time and made some amazing friends.


Angela Bassett as Marie Laveau, as featured in American Horror Story: Coven 
coming December 2016 From Integrity Toys!

[IT announced these dolls like two years ago–just as AHS: Coven was wrapping up. Retailers are finally taking pre-orders on the 6 dolls in the series. The dolls all have new face sculpts modeled after the actors who played each character, which helps explain the long delay in release! The edition sizes range from 600 to 900, depending on the character. I’m (more than) a little mad that Angela Bassett’s doll is the smallest edition size–even the Evan Peters doll has a bigger edition size than hers!?–but believe this means I’m gonna get my pre-order reserved ASAP-tually! –MOD]

Angela Bassett's career is unparalleled...

Exhibit A: these set of Angela Bassett gifs…  

And she’s timeless!
Basically, Angela Bassett looked Father Time in the face…


and told him to move the hell on.

Queen. Goddess. Extreme Enunciator. The Ageless Acting Phenom, Angela Bassett.
