Zulu King Elect 2018 - Brent D. Washington, Sr.
Unlike any of the other New Orleans carnival krewes, the Zulu King is elected. Other krewes appoint their King and Queens, while the Zulu process includes a campaign to earn votes.Campaigning and the parties to secure votes are as much fun as carnival itself. The remaining Zulu Characters are also elected and includes the Big Shot, who tries to upstage the King.
Zulu Big Shot 2018 - John Gourrier, Jr.
The "Big Shot" of Africa was created by one of our deceased members, Mr. Paul E. Johnson in the early 1930´s. The "Big Shot" outshines the King. (The term outshine was used in the earlier days which meant to look better than someone else in competition.) The "Big Shot" is the man behind the throne.

When an audition with the King is essential, talk to the "Ambassador", because "When you talk to the ‘Ambassador, you're talking to the King". Zulu Mayor 2018 - Rodney P. Mason, Jr.
The "Mayor" character was created in the 1970's. The "Mayor" is the chief magistrate responsible for the daily affairs of the King in Zululand. "Whatever the King needs, the ‘Mayor' will make it happen". Zulu Province Prince 2018 - Patrick C. Smith
The Province Prince character was created in the early 1970's by Brother Milton Bienamee. This character was to represent the most senior K
