Abstract

Christy's Minstrels set a new standard for minstrel performance in mid-Victorian Britain. Yet reception was far from monolithic: the cultural affiliations of audiences led to important regional differences in reception, including room for racialist perspectives complicated by religion, nationalism, class, and antislavery convictions.
