Trivia Games
Jim Crow laws were named for an ante-bellum mistral show character. The minstrel show is one of the first indigenous forms of American entertainment. The tradition began in February 1843 when a group of four white men from Virginia, billed as the "Virgina Minstrels", applied black cork to their faces and performed a song-and-dance act in a small hall in New York City. The performance was such a success that the group was invited to tour to other cities and imitators sprang up immediately. These troups were successors to individual performers who imitated Negro singing and dancing. One of the earliest and most successful individual performers was Thomas Dartmouth "Daddy" Rice. Rice, a white actor, was inspired by an elderly Negro in Louisville, Kentucky crooning and dancing to a song that ended with the same chorus: "Weel about and turn about and do jis so,
Eb'ry time I weel about I jump Jim Crow." Rice's imitation of the Negro's song and dance routine took him from Louisville to Cincinnati to Pittsburgh to Philadelphia and finally to New York City in 1832.

About the Project:
When completed this collection will include accurate transcriptions of many important and representative primary texts from nineteenth century American history, with special emphasis on those sources that shed light on sectional conflict and transformations in regional identity. Because of our location in South Carolina and the salient role of its natives in the era's history there will also be a number of materials relevant to South Carolina or South Carolinians. Almost all of the documents have been transcribed from originals by myself or by Furman students. The originals are in the public domain. These electronic versions may be copied freely as long as proper attribution is given. To maintain a balance between accuracy and quick production we have decided to post some documents before the final round of proofreading has taken place. Versions that have been reverse-order proofed against the original texts are indicated with a as they are re-posted. All un-starred documents should be used with the awareness that minor errors may exist in them.

    Negro Mountain is the highest point on U.S. Route 40 in Maryland. The mountain range got its name from a series of events which may have occurred as late as the second half of the 18th century when Maryland was on the northwest frontier. By one account, in 1756, during the French and Indian War, a force under a frontiersman named Colonel Thomas Cresap, had a skirmish with a band of Indians on this mountain. One of Cresap's men, a giant black (one version says he was a slave of Cresap's named "Nemesis", while another calls the African American a scout) was killed and buried on the mountain, giving that landmark its name.
    According to another account, the 30-mile mountain range which runs through Garrett county Maryland and Somerset county Pennsylvania, was named after an African American servant, who was known as Goliah in some historical accounts and as Nemesis in others. According to this legend, a Captain Andrew Friend's unnamed black servant was wounded while trying to fight Indians attacking Friend's hunting party. Friend and a companion moved the servant to dense underbrush and stayed with him throughout the night. The servant died the following morning. From then on the mountain where he died was called Negro mountain.

He saw a need to develop an appreciation for the historic and cultural heritage of African Americans. Toward this end he contacted Theodore Brunson, a lay historian in Afro-American history; Mrs. Nora Fant, a long time and active resident of Jersey City; and Mrs. Virginia Dunnaway, a community worker and teacher. Together they formed the Historical and Cultural Committee setting as its purpose the research, collection, preservation and exhibition of Afro_american history and culture. The committee chose February, Black History Month, as the appropiate time to present a program and exhibition on its findings. In 1984, the Afro-American Historical Society Museum obtained a permanent location on the second floor of the Greenville Public Library. The spcace was granted by the trustees of the library. It gave rise to great optimism for the future. As an incorporated entity with a permannet location, it was then possible to qualify for grants and to solicit donations. It also encouraged the further development of the historical and cultural African American exhibitions and programs.
