Wednesday, January 22, 2020

Blurring distinctions between the morally edifying, instructive, and perverse, P.T. Barnum’s American Museum at the corner of Broadway and Ann Street in New York was central to the emerging culture of popular entertainment in the 1840s-1860s. Les Harrison estimates that by 1865, forty-one million visitors attended P.T. Barnum’s American Museum in New York: nearly six million more than the total population of the United States at the conclusion of the Civil War.

“Toni Morrison and Her Legacy”

Periodicals, Protest, and the South: Periodicals--especially those addressed to regional or other focused communities--have long been credited as potent political forces for organizing social protest movements and collectives. From radical New Orleans abolitionist papers to contemporary university publications, southern periodicals have helped to articulate and circulate protests against racism, economic exploitation, institutionalized inequality, and many other social ills.
