Amos 'n Andy: The Dairy

by Nicholas Sammond

In the 1920s, with the fading of vaudeville, blackface minstrelsy as a live performance form began to fade, appearing in the 1930s primarily in films such as Wonder Bar (1934) or Babes in Arms (1939), which treated it as a nostalgic throwback to simpler times. However, minstrelsy had a brief reprieve when it became popular on radio, in shows by white minstrels such as Moran and Mack or Gosden and Correll's Amos 'n' Andy.
