Abstract:

Bluefield Auditorium Posters spans the years 1956 to 1958. The collection consists of seven concert posters for performances held at the auditorium in Bluefield, West Viriginia. Performers included Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Ruth Brown, The Coasters, Fats Domino, The Five Satins, Ernie Freeman, Etta James, Little Richard, and "Big" Joe Turner. The collection provides a glimpse into the types of acts that appeared at Bluefield Auditorium and, most importantly, how the shows were promoted to a segregated audience. Seen in a broader context, the collection provides insights to the musicians that performed during the mid- to late-1950s, and the types of venues at which they performed.
