Early in 1909, a group of laborers who had organized a club named “The Tramps,” went to the Pythian Theater to see a musical comedy performed by the Smart Set. The comedy included a skit entitled, “There Never Was and Never Will Be a King Like Me,” about the Zulu Tribe…
While the “Group” marched in Mardi Gras as early as 1901, their first appearance as Zulus came in 1909, with William Story as King.
In the 1960’s during the height of Black awareness, it was unpopular to be a Zulu. Dressing in a grass skirt and donning a black face were seen as demeaning. Large numbers of black organizations protested against the Zulu organization, and its membership dwindled to approximately 16 men.
The etsy shop of Doctor Sweet Tooth has offered up some Coconut Goodies in honor of Zulu and their coconut throw.
