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.
