Lot of two. 1) J. W. Johnson's 'Old Reliable' Virginia Minstrels. Example of stereotyping based on race, yet definitely part of American history. 2) 28 x 10" on newsprint. 2) Sign distributed by the Lonestar Restaurant Association out of Dallas, Texas. "one side says closed. The other says "No Dogs, Negroes or Mexicans." Harry Robinson Jr., director of Dallas` Museum of African-American Life Culture says the sign is repulsive, but says, ''I don`t want to be bothered with it, either. But once the kids look at it, at least they can see from whence we came and they can get an idea of what it was like for blacks living in this country in those days."
