The above is the title of an upcoming book  that explores the presence and depiction of Africans and African descendants in the Pan American Exposition of 1901. It also examines the African American response to the depiction of African people at the Exposition.

Note:  This history page is a work in progress.  The subject of the Africans and Africans at the Pan American Exposition of 1901 is a very complicated and involved story.  We wanted to at least provide you with a beginning of some of the important matters involving Africans and their descendants in this world-wide event.  References are being updated daily and corrections and additions occur daily as well.  Please be patient with us as we gather together the history of this momentous event.  Thank you.
