Rice based his entire routine on the songs and dances he had seen performed
by an elderly crippled black man named Jim Crow. Supposedly, the old man
sang as he went about his work cleaning the stables. His deformed leg produced

points in his song. This kind of shuffling dance was known as the Jim Crow—

through the ...

Thomas D. Rice was a white who made famous the Jim Crow routine. "Before he

While the exact origin of the term "Jim Crow" is unknown, most historians point to
performer Thomas Dartmouth "Daddy" Rice's 1832 song and dance by the same
name as an early source. It became a common adjective by 1838, and "Jim Crow

culture, the Jim Crow farcical performance became a staple routine in minstrel
shows, a popular form of entertainment in the nineteenth century.2 Mark Twain

Jim Crow As a term used to describe African Americans, ''Jim Crow'' probably
originated in th-century minstrelsy. It has also been suggested that the term
referred to a slave ... routine called ''Jump Jim Crow'' beginning in . With face
blackened from burnt cork and dressed in the rags of a beggar, Rice skipped on
