Article "WC Athletes To Hold Minstrel Show Next Friday Night"

Description

This article advertised the Westhampton Athletic Association's minstrel show, in which white students would be wearing blackface. The article claimed that it was going to be "the funniest...show of them all." Mr. Bones and Mr. Jones performed the show; however, the article does not describe who these two individuals were. The show took place on Friday, October 18 at 8pm in the student government room of Keller Hall and cost only a quarter.
