    One thought on “Darktown Strutters”

    1. After the first two pages, I was totally immersed in this tale of travelling troupes of performers set in pre-and post-Civil War U.S. I'm going to have to read it again to get all the symbolism and ideas thrown out about identity and race (and some, being white, I will never get), but the characters are complicated and real. The times are racist and scary. The laughter is always there on the edge of tragedy, and the book is fabulous.

    2. Meditation on American popular culture's construction of racial (and other identities) told through the story of minstrel dancer Jim Crown before and after the Civil War
