Callie Lyr/Tune Req: Jim Crow (minstrel song, 1820) (32) RE: Help: Jim Crow: Minstrel show-song from 1820' 11 May 01


According to Mezz Mezzrow's "Really the Blues", Jim Crow was a term used by persons of colour ro refer to white racists. He was writing around the 20s/30s from memory.

The book should be readily available and is a fantastic read, particularly in its references to black and white musicians being allowed to play together, and early 'mixed' recordings.
