Black Cultural Entrepreneurs and White Ownership of Black Culture

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

A significant theatrical workforce emerged among African Americans following the Civil War. With the end of slavery Blacks could now seek a livelihood as artists and entertainers. This also set in motion the quest for blacks to become cultural entrepreneurs of their own cultural products. They would meet of course a preexisting White entertainment structure that continually expropriated Black cultural products for profit and that routinely altered these products to accommodate the sensibilities of a broader and more lucrative White market. This process of expropriation, control, and distortion has remained a historic challenge facing Black cultural entrepreneurs. This paper will examine (survey) these challenges from the end of the Civil War to include: blackface minstrelsy; vaudeville circuits; Tin Pan Alley and music publishing; theater ownership and circuits; dance schools; artist managers; musicians and unions; recording companies; movie production; road and package shows; and radio entrepreneurs and brokers.
