About the Author

Bernth Lindfors is a professor emeritus of English and African literatures at the University of Texas at Austin. He is the author of a number of books on African literature and folklore, including Early Soyinka (2008) and Early Achebe (2009).


"This book will surprise you and may shock you. Its fascinating case studies reveal how Africans and people of color were exhibited as freaks, or became genuine entertainers enjoying their craft, in nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Europe and America. It is also a serious study showing how 'racial science' was popularized to justify to the European and American masses the conquest and subjugation of Africa and Africans."--Neil Parsons, author of Clicko the Dancing Bushman

"Highly recommended, undergraduates though faculty; general readers."--Choice
