Abstract:

The Asadata Dafora Photograph Collection depicts some aspects of his personal life and his professional career as dancer/choreographer, from the 1910s to the early 1960s.

The collection consists of individual and group portraits and candid shots of Dafora, family, friends, and professional colleagues; individual and group portraits of Dafora and his dance company that were probably used for publicity purposes; and photographic postcards depicting views from Sierra Leone and Liberia. The collection is limited in views of his early life.

The collection includes a group of studio portraits and candid shots that are probably of Dafora's family and friends in England (n.d.); a portrait of Dafora's wife, Rosalia Ernestina Horton, with a young child (n.d.); a series of individual and group studio portraits of Dafora and his dance troupe, depicting scenes from his work "Kykunkor," featuring Abdul Assen, Musu Esammi, and other unidentified dancers (1934); group portraits of Rosalia with an African delegation at New York International Airport (now called John F. Kennedy International) (ca. 1950s); and individual and group portraits of Dafora and his Shogola Oloba Group on stage, including dancer Esther Rolle (1960).

Also included are portraits of dancer Joseph Layode, entertainer Rita Kingsley, sculptor Estella Wright, and the Magnets Steel Band with Lord Nelson. A series of photographic postcards depicts a pair of Liberian acrobatic dancers; the Connaught Hospital in Freetown, Sierra Leone; and a group of musicians and another pair of acrobat dancers in Sierra Leone (1946).
