Summary
"This pictorial history of African American dance traces its roots back to slavery and lists its characteristics. The photographs offer compelling glimpses into the world of slavery, minstrel show, the honky-tonk, the vaudeville stage, dance halls, nightclubs, movies, and more. Most images are culled from hundreds of rare items in the author's collection of black dance memorabilia"--Provided by publisher
