Soledad To Be At Mardi Gras

Soledad O'Brien will join local New Orleans attorney Stephen Rue as 'Mr. and Mrs. Big Stuff' in the Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club's 2009 Mardi Gras Parade.

The Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club is New Orleans largest and best known predominantly African-American Mardi Gras organization. As Zulu will be celebrating it's 100th anniversary of parading, the Zulu members have elected Stephen Rue, a New Orleans attorney to be the first Caucasian "Mr. Big Stuff" Carnival Character in its 100 year history.

Soledad, "Mrs. Big Stuff," will be formally presented in her Mardi Gras regalia at the Annual Zulu Ball in New Orleans on Friday, February 20, 2009.
