From Library Journal

This book is an examination of black collectibles (items made in the image of an African American) and memorabilia from the 1880s to the 1950s. Goings (history, Florida Atlantic Univ.) describes their origins, death, and eventual resurrection in the late 1970s.

From the Back Cover

Mammy and Uncle Mose examines the production and consumption of black collectables and memorabilia from the 1880s to the late 1950s. Black collectibles - objects made in or with the image of a black person - were everyday items such as advertising cards, housewares (salt and pepper shakers, cookie jars, spoon rests, etc.), toys and games, postcards, souvenirs, and decorative knick-knacks.
