time" dances, which are strictly Negro, have been familiar to American theatre
audiences. A few years ago the public discovered the "turkey trot," the "eagle rock
," "ballin' the jack," and several other varieties that started the modern dance
craze.

away and Negroes, or other Property of the American Inhabitants.' Sir Guy

citizens of the United States could be compensated later if they had legitimate
claims to blacks who were allowed to emigrate. The record was called the “Book
of Negroes”, ...

The book called The Tragic Era, written by Claude Bowers in 1929, castigates,
