Original Sheet Music with lyrics for 35 hit songs from 1878 to 1922, all written by black songwriters.  Included are songs from Tin Pan Alley as well as selections from black Broadway shows.  These funny, sweet, melancholy, toe-tapping tunes remain a cornerstone of popular American music of the early 1900's.
