Posted By on Sat, Sep 26, 2009 at 7:24 AM

Here’s a clip from Thursday’s YMO sponsored Peace Walk thru Central City – just a taste to tie you over till Sunday’s parade (see route and time below): Six bands, 5000+ parade-goers, and nine divisions of scores of Black men wearing proper suits, sashes, fans and dress shoes, dancing for four hours atop the hot, feet-ravaging busted streets of New Orleans like it's not a problem. THIS is why New Orleans didn't die, aint never gonna die. Mufkrz here are HARD CORE!
