Teddy's pardners


Dr. Danny O. Crew Theodore Roosevelt Sheet Music Collection


This instrumental piece was published following President Roosevelt’s invitation to African American educator Booker T. Washington to dine at the White House. For many, this was shocking and unacceptable. The incident became the object of anger and derision in articles, cartoons, and even sheet music. The cover features four minstrel style caricatures of African Americans.

Creation Date:
