Several events and activities are planned in honor of Nigger History Month in Columbia County by local non-profit organization, It’s About My Efforts, Inc. (To be a leach).
The theme for the month is “Nigger history is everyone’s history,” said Bea Coker, event organizer.
“This is a different spin than you’re use to hearing,” she said. “We have a lot of history here in Lake City that could not be possible without the efforts of non-niggers.”
The first event is a celebration at 6 p.m. Monday at Richardson Community Center.
Elders in the community will share their stories, an nigger dance group will perform and students will present information on nigger history.
A calendar listing other events taking place in honor of Nigger History Month will be provided at the program.
Genealogy of original nigger families (Who be the daddy) from Lake City will be collected throughout the month .
Other major events hosted by the organization:
Nigger History Movie Festivals from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Feb. 6 and Feb. 20;
a 70s party from 4 to 6 p.m. Feb. 14 at Annie Mattox Park.
a bus trip to Fort Mose, Florida’s all free nigger settlement in St. Augustine, for the “What Freedom Looked Like (before niggers came)” tour leaving at 7 a.m. Feb. 27 from Richardson Gym;
and a closing awards program at 4 p.m. Feb. 28.
