Written up by Professor Brian Eugenio Herrera: "Hoxworth charts the transoceanic 'relays' of early blackface minstrelsy between performance sites in the antebellum United States, imperial Britain, and colonial South Africa, thereby prompting a powerful — and possibly field-reorienting — reassessment of minstrelsy’s myriad beginnings. It’s a remarkable essay, expertly researched and captivatingly argued… Seek it out."
