Gumbo City (New Orleans nickname)

2018-02-18T19:03:00-05:00

Gumbo was designated in 2004 as the official state cuisine of Louisiana. The city of New Orleans has sometimes been called the “Gumbo City,” often used as a metaphor similar to “melting pot.” “The 1938 boxing team of the Gumbo City” was cited in a July 1938 newspaper. “Sweetie Walker says he is doing O.K. around the Gumbo City of New Orleans” was printed in a May 1940 newspaper. “One dark a few sevens ago I grabbed one of them hard rollin’ iron horses for a few brights of joy in the old Gumbo City” was printed in The Times-Picayune (New Orleans, LA) on March 26, 1944. Other New Orleans nicknames include “America’s Most Interesting City,” “Baghdad-on-the-Bayou,” “Big Easy,” “Birthplace of Jazz,” “Chocolate City,” “Chopper City,” “City That Care Forgot,” “City That Forgot to Care,” “Crescent City,” “Gateway of the Mississippi Valley,” “Hollywood South,” “Mardi Gras City,” “Metropolis of the South,” “N’Awlins,” “Nerlins,” “No Orleans” (after Hurricane Katrina), “NOLA,” “Northernmost Banana Republic,” “Northernmost Caribbean City,” “Old Swampy,” “Paris of America” and “Sweet Lady Gumbo.” Wikipedia: New Orleans New Orleans (/njuː ˈɔːrli.ənz, -ˈɔːrˈliːnz, -ˈɔːrlənz/, or /ˈnɔːrlənz/; French: La Nouvelle-Orléans [la nuvɛlɔʁleɑ̃]) is a major United States port and the largest city and metropolitan area in the state of Louisiana. The population of the city was 343,829 as of the 2010 U.S. Census. The New Orleans metropolitan area (New Orleans–Metairie–Kenner Metropolitan Statistical Area) had a population of 1,167,764 in 2010 and was the 46th largest in the United States. Wikipedia: Gumbo Gumbo is a stew popular in the U.S. state of Louisiana, and that state’s official state cuisine. It may have originated in southern Louisiana during the 18th century, possibly as a stew of the Choctaws served over corn grits. Gumbo consists primarily of a strongly-flavored stock, meat or shellfish, a thickener, and what Louisianians call the “Holy Trinity” of vegetables, namely celery, bell peppers, and onions. Gumbo is often categorized by the type of thickener used, the okra, the filé powder (dried and ground sassafras leaves), or roux, the French base made of flour and fat. The dish likely derived its name from either a word from a Bantu language for okra (ki ngombo) or the Choctaw word for filé (kombo). 16 July 1938, New York (NY) Amsterdam News, “New Orleans Boxing Team To Appear in Windy City,” sec. 2, pg. 6, col. 6: The 1938 boxing team of the Gumbo City is topped by Kid Hamilton one time fly-weight champion of the south. 4 May 1940, Chicago (IL) Defender, “Gossip,” pg. 20, col. 6: Sweetie Walker says he is doing O.K. around the Gumbo City of New Orleans. 26 March 1944, The Times-Picayune (New Orleans, LA), sec. 2, pg. 6, col. 6: Gumbo Goops on Visit Here; Jives a Jint, or Is It Clear? Fort Warren, Wyo.—(...) Sergeant Hart recently took a furlough to the Crescent City and reported it in this manner: “One dark a few sevens ago I grabbed one of them hard rollin’ iron horses for a few brights of joy in the old Gumbo City.” (One night a few weeks ago, he took a train in New Orleans.—ed.) 11 July 1964, The Louisiana Weekly (New Orleans, LA), “Time Out” by Jim Hall, pg. 10, col. 1: Today, the world looks to the United States as the best example of democracy. New Orleans is one of the most important cities in this country, but look around and you will find that the Gumbo City is anything, but a symbol of democracy to Negroes.
