Summary: Ethnological show business has a very long history in Europe. It became increasingly common after advances in navigational technology put Europeans in touch with human communities all over the globe.

In the 19th and 20th centuries some of the most interesting individuals and groups exhibited in Europe and America came from Africa. What did the average spectator think of such representatives of the "Dark Continent"? If the display was a dramatic o ...show morene- -that is, if the Africans sang, danced or acted out events--what opinions did observers form of them as performers and human beings? How was the spectacle staged, and who organized and managed the show? How authentic were these performances? From where did the performers actually come?
