a joyous event from the civil war times, where white upstanding christian americans would buy-out and sell off thier black slaves that they had captured from africa. This was a celebratory auction which would often end in a thanksgiving like feast.
the phrase "pic-nic" - derives from this word
- "Hey lyle, I bought three shadow backs from the pick-a-nigger festival last month."
- After buying six black slaves at the pick-a-nigger festival we laughed by the camp fire, and ate ourselves silly.
