Title

The Web 1924 "History of the Minstrel"

Description

The page presents the "History of the Minstrel" for the Westhampton campus. It began in 1915-1916 "just for fun." The Minstrel performance, coordinated by the Westhampton senior class, shows the acceptance of minstrelsy and blackface during this time period. Although the annual show is prepared by the Senior Class, the whole school can participate in acting as "niggers" for the "annual outburst of mirth."
