Alan LightStrausbaugh has taken a disturbing piece of American cultural history and illustrated the ways that this music, for better and for worse, helped shape our world. As these songs performed for white audiences by white men painted black, based on songs sung by black men that might have been written by white men, gained popularity, he writes, "the question of whether minstrelsy was white or black music was moot. It was a mix, a mutt - that is, it was American music."
