Passport to the World: Federal Republic of Nigeria


Sister Cities of Franklin and Williamson County presents the Federal Republic of Nigeria in their Passport to the World Series at the Williamson County Public Library. This presentation will be on Sunday, March 2, at 2:00 p.m., at the Library. Madame Nonye Ejiofor and friends will present the lecture, featuring traditional Nigerian cuisine, African drums, artifacts and details on the country. Ejiofor is the Publisher/CEO for the New American Times Newspaper, an immigrant community newspaper.

Nigeria has more than 250 ethnic groups with three dominant tribes. The Niger River is approximately 2,600 miles long and is the largest river in West Africa. Also the name of the country, Nigeria, is based on the name of this river.

The Passport to the World Series was launched in 2010, and provides a personal look into the continents around the globe. This bi-monthly series walks through the doorways of the world to experience the art, music, food, lifestyle, landscape and heritage of our international neighbors presented through performance, presentation and display.
