Black Magicians in America

Book - 2001
Rate this:
Throughout American history, black magicians have achieved great skill in both the magician's tricks of the trade as well as the psychology of entertaining an audience. However, because of slavery and, later, racial segregation and discrimination, few have been able to make their living as magicians. Those who have succeeded are rare indeed, and although some have left a mark on history, many exist only as names on old playbills or in newspaper advertisements. Jim Haskins delivers an illuminating portrait of these unheralded pioneers -- a tribute to African-Americans who paved the way for and will inspire future generations.
