COVID-19 Claims Omega Psi Phi and Mardi Gras Zulu King

If we were in normal times, Larry Arthur Hammond would have had a funeral befitting a Zulu king, with thousands of mourners in the church and marching in second-line parades celebrating a mainstay of New Orleans Mardi Gras royalty. Only 10 people were allowed in the funeral parlor, and hundreds of close-knit members of his century-old parade group and African American fraternity, Omega Psi Phi, were prevented from honoring one of their leaders, weeks after he died of COVID-19.

But improvisation is integral to the jazz culture of New Orleans, and improvise they did.
