"This collection restores the luster to Ira Aldridge's reputation by examining his extraordinary achievements against all odds. The early essays offer biographical information, while later essays examine his critical and popular reception throughout the world. Here, too, are analyses of Aldridge's performances in some of his most famous roles, as well as surprising new information about his private life. Taken together, these diverse approaches to Aldridge offer a fuller understanding and heightened appreciation of a remarkable man who had an exceptionally interesting life and a spectacular career."--Jacket
Early African entertainments abroad : from the Hottentot Venus to Africa's first Olympians by Bernth Lindfors( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries African and pseudo-African performers were displayed as curiosities throughout Europe and America. Appearing in circuses, ethnographic exhibitions, and traveling shows, these individuals and troupes drew large crowds. As Bernth Lindfors shows, the showmen, impresarios, and even scientists who brought supposedly representative inhabitants of the "Dark Continent" to a gaping public often selected the performers for their sensational impact. Spotlighting and exaggerating physical, mental, or cultural differences, the resulting displays reinforced pernicious racial stereotypes and left a disturbing legacy.--Provided by publisher
