New Orleans’ Most Talked Of Club (NOMTOC) is the area’s only all-black parading organization. Located on the West Bank of the Mississippi River, NOMTOC’s Carnival activities are sponsored by the Jugs Social Club, which was organized in 1951. In addition to having provided a means of entertainment for members and guests, the Jugs have given generously to youth groups, schools and numerous community civic programs. The size and quality of the procession have steadily grown since its inaugural 1971 parade of six floats, one posse and a half-dozen bands. NOMTOC’s membership includes men and women.
