However, Thursday's grand opening of the 19th annual festival came with a sterner note from Mayor Mitch Landrieu who took to his own stage for a press conference to address to issue of gun violence and murdering in the world-famous Crescent City, as reported by Nola.com. Landrieu acknowledged that things had been going well for the city, with recent accolades such as 'the nation's laboratory for change and innovation,' and announced plans for a Sunday morning gathering for New Orleans' mothers who have lost their children to violence, saying "We understand that mothers who have loved and lost are critical in changing the culture of violence and in ending this unacceptable epidemic of young African-American men killing each other," giving early festival attendees for for thought as they prepared to begin their celebration of black musicians, performers and artists.
