A Statement from King Arthur


We are deeply saddened and hurt by the acts of racism that have taken place across the nation and here in New Orleans.

The Krewe of King Arthur stands firm in our belief and motto that we welcome all that share our love in Mardi Gras and New Orleans. We continue to uphold the fundamental grounds that our club was founded on 44 years ago which is one of diversity, inclusion, equality, and acceptance. We celebrate diversity and have been working for years on an anti-bullying campaign that supports our ideology. Our Krewe continues to expand the traditional story of King Arthur by embracing additional characters that represent all backgrounds and ethnicities.

Our love of New Orleans is only enhanced by the multi-faceted cultures and influential contributions of everyone within our city and surrounding areas. Our goals have always been to create a safe environment for people to enjoy Carnival while promoting equality and positive social change.

The Krewe of King Arthur has no defined relationship with any other Krewe other than having mutual members or providing support throughout the years. Any statements made by any other Krewe do not reflect the deeply held beliefs of our Krewe.

We recognize that staying silent is not an option and is betrayal to our fellow members. The Krewe of King Arthur stands with our community and behind the Black Lives Matter movement and against any forms of social injustice.

We are humbled by what our diverse board, lieutenants, and membership from all parts of the world have brought to our organization. We do not have all the answers, but we will continue our efforts for change and welcome all that share the common convictions of our Krewe. The Krewe of King Arthur continues to listen and act upon our learnings and welcomes the feedback of our members. Together we can all bring forth change – we can all be the embodiment of the legendary round table of King Arthur.
