The First Negro Fair

Record #:
Held in Raleigh, North Carolina and opening on Tuesday, the 18th (month not mentioned), the first fair specifically catering to African Americans was held at the five-acre fair grounds, just outside of the city. Boasting agricultural and floral halls, other exhibits included side shows, and the presence of the electrical machine. The efforts of the organizing committee spread to other states, influencing subsequent African American fairs in neighboring states.
