This is a picture of Dr. Jualynne Dodson, our Voodoo consultant for Five Voodoo Dogs. Got to hear her present her work studying the religious traditions in Cuba. Many of the separate and distinct religions in Cuba came from the Congo with slaves that were taken to Cuba to work the sugar plantations. It's been very enlightening working with Jualynne. She's a Professor in the Department of Sociology at Michigan State University.
