That time Bill and Hillary Clinton went to a voodoo ceremony in Haiti – The Washington Post


In his memoir “My Life,” the former president wrote a vivid account of a trip the couple’s first trip to Haiti in 1975 — which had been a wedding gift from their friend David Edwards, who had some business to do there for Citibank and some extra frequent flyer miles.

Bill Clinton wrote that “the most interesting day of the trip” came when he, Hillary and Edwards got a chance to see voodoo in practice in a village near Port-au-Prince. The priest was Max Beauvoir, a former chemical engineer who had studied at the Sorbonne in Paris. Beauvoir had abandoned that career when his voodoo-priest grandfather died and named him as his successor. via – The Washington Post
