NOTE: Although Harper's Weekly carried a rather long series of images showing black people attending the 1893 Columbian World's Fair (called "The Johnson Family Visits the Fair"), it features such racist and caricatured stereotypes of black people that I could not, in good conscience, include any of those images on my web pages. For an excellent and detailed study of the racial tensions inherent in the representation of the "White" City and its events, see Matthew Wilson's "The Nigger": The Careers of Paul Laurence Dunbar, Henry 0. Tanner, and Charles W. Chesnut, particularly the first long section titled "Pretext: The Chicago World's Columbian Exposition as Racial Locus." Or see a more compressed summary of black Americans' participation in the world's fair in Shirley J. Portwood's review of Christopher Robert Reed's book "All the World Is Here": The Black Presence at White City.
