Africans, Darkies and Negroes: Black Faces at the Pan American Exposition of 1901, Buffalo, New York

[NOTE: The descriptions in this title were utilized during the turn of the century to describe members of the African family at various phases in their European experience. They are intended not as an offense but rather to preserve/respect the need for historical accuracy. The above is the title of an upcoming book  that explores the presence and depiction of Africans and African descendants in the Pan American Exposition of 1901. The book will also examine the African American response to the depiction of African people at the Exposition.]

The co-developers in this project are Peggy Brooks-Bertram, Dr. P.H. and Barbara A. Seals Nevergold, Ph.D.

Note:  This history page is a work in progress.  The subject of the Africans and Africans at the Pan American Exposition of 1901 is a very complicated and involved story.  We wanted to at least provide you with a beginning of some of the important matters involving Africans and their descendants in this world-wide event.  References, corrections and additions are updated on a regular basis.  Please be patient with us as we gather together the history of this momentous event.  Thank you.
