Keith’s Special Zulu Coconut For Obama

On TV 2 Comments
From the WDSU website: [flashvideo filename="zulu.flv" /]NEW ORLEANS -- To mark a historic day in American history, the Zulu Aid and Pleasure Club made history of its own creating its first politically themed coconut designed specifically for President Barack Obama. "One hundred years and Barack Obama as president. What a combination," Zulu President Charles Hamilton said. It's a special combination because the first African-American president took office the same year Zulu celebrates its 100th anniversary. "It's special. I've seen many coconuts. And this one is awesome. It combines New Orleans and the D.C. and the good ol' USA on it," Hamilton said. Zulu's coconuts are prized possessions many people hope to receive as Zulu parades on Mardi Gras. But this special inauguration coconut is much much more. It's also an original piece of art designed by artist Keith Eckles. The artist sanded the coconut's rough surface, making it smooth enough to begin painting an image that combines Washington, New Orleans and Mardi Gras. "What better honor," Eckles said. The coconut arrived in Washington, D.C., in time for the inauguration. The organization hopes to present it to the nation's new president. Zulu also took its special 100th anniversary beads to Washington in hopes of presenting them to the president.
