6th Annual Cotton Pickers Ball and Ancestral Celebration
On Friday November 10, the 6th Annual Cotton Pickers Ball and Ancestral Celebration shall include a pouring of libation and will take place at da’ House of Khafre,located at 300 Main Street, in the heart of Indianola. The celebration begins at 7pm. Immediately following the Ancestral Celebration the event will culminate into a good-old-fashion “Cotton Pickers Ball.” This is a “black-tie” affair (though overalls and period piece costumes and other “cotton pickin’ attire” are strongly encouraged and expected). Blues and Gospel music will be performed. An elaborate selection of gourmet appetizers and “field food” will be provided by Betty’s Place of Indianola and served up in authentic flair. Inverness-based event designer, Linda Rule, once again will provide decorations. All aspects of this two-day event are done in support of the Cotton Pickers of America Monument and Sharecroppers Interpretive Centerproject.
