What's the meaning of the phrase 'Pop goes the weasel'?
Through the s, many well-known entertainers of stage and screen also performed in blackface. Stone in Boston Blackie's Rendezvous. In the first known film of Uncle Tom's Cabin all of the major black roles were whites in blackface.
Griffith 's The Birth of a Nation used whites in blackface to represent all of its major black characters,  but reaction against the film's racism largely put an end to this practice in dramatic film roles. Thereafter, whites in blackface would appear almost exclusively in broad comedies or "ventriloquizing" blackness  in the context of a vaudeville or minstrel performance within a film.
The radio program Amos 'n' Andy —60 constituted a type of "aural blackface", in that the black characters were portrayed by whites and conformed to stage blackface stereotypes. Strausbaugh estimates that roughly one-third of late s MGM cartoons "included a blackface, coon, or mammy figure.
The story behind the ballet was inspired by a tone poem written by Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov. In the ballet the leading female character, Zobeide, is seduced by a Golden Slave. The dancer who portrayed the Golden Slave, the first being Vaslav Nijinskywould have his face and body painted brown for the performance.
This was done to show the audience the slave was of a darker complexion. Later inFokine choreographed the ballet Petrushkawhich centers around three puppets that come to life, Petrushka, the Ballerina, and the Moor.
When the ballet premiered, the part of the Moor, first danced by Alexander Orlov, was performed in full blackface. The Moor puppet is first seen onstage playing with a coconut, which he attempts to open with his scimitar.
His movements are apelike. The Moor seduces the Ballerina and later savagely cuts off the head of the puppet Petrushka. When Petrushka is performed today, the part of the Moor is still done in full blackface, or occasionally blueface.
The blackface has not been publicly criticized in the ballet community.
Shown here in blackface, he was the highest-paid African American entertainer of his day. Frederick Douglass generally abhorred blackface and was one of the first people to write against the institution of blackface minstrelsy, condemning it as racist in nature, with inauthentic, northern, white origins.
These "colored minstrels"  always claimed to be recently freed slaves doubtlessly many were, but most were not  and were widely seen as authentic.
This presumption of authenticity could be a bit of a trap, with white audiences seeing them more like "animals in a zoo"  than skilled performers.
Despite often smaller budgets and smaller venues, their public appeal sometimes rivalled that of white minstrel troupes.
