Title
Soirées Éthiopiennes : Blackface Culture in Quebec
Abstract
The history of Blackface minstrelsy began in the United States in the mid-nineteenth century and soon after arrived in Montreal. The author notes: "Like the States, Montreal’s environment was no different. Montreal laughed at Black caricature. Hamall's Serenaders was a blackface minstrel troupe founded by Hugh Hamall in Montreal in 1867...Montreal’s Blackface minstrel shows played in venues for all classes and languages."
