Bill to create 'Eartha Kitt Day' in SC stalls

Jun 12, 2011 1:42:00 PM - thestate.com
A push to get the birthday of the later singer and actress Eartha Kitt recognized in the state where she was born has stalled in the Legislature.

Supporters of the bill told The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg that they will keep pushing the proposal when lawmakers return in regular session next January.

The proposal would make Jan. 17 "Eartha Kitt Day" in the state. It would not be an official state holiday.

Kitt was born on a farm just outside of the Orangeburg County town of North in 1927. She died in December 2008.

Kitt's only child says passing the bill would show her home state loves her as much as the rest of the world.
