Minstrel shows were the most popular form of entertainment in the States from the early 1800’s till about 1920. There was a minstrel show at our trailer park sometime about 1953. And that was about the end of them. One of my favorite entertainers, Frank Crummit, was in minstrel shows at the first of the century. In today’s post I’ll put some links to a couple of his minstrel songs. Actually one song and one story.
