The Minstrel Poster Collection highlights individual minstrels and minstrel companies, who usually performed programs of African-American music, broad comedy, and African-American impersonations. The posters feature potraits as well as depictions of the minstrel performances. While minstrel shows were popular starting in the 1840s, most of the minstrel posters date from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. ALL POSTERS ARE ON PREMIUM QUALITY PAPER AND MEASURE A LARGE 13 X 19 INCHES PERFECT FOR FRAMING. ALL PRINTS ARE REPRODUCTIONS OF ORIGINAL POSTERS. THANKS.
