So Recent



This was an actual game played at circuses & carnivals, mostly in celebration of "INDEPENDENCE DAY", all over America from the late 19th century well into the early 1940s. 3 balls cost them a dime to hit a grinning Black CHILD peeking through a platform painted to resemble an African jungle while the child's head appeared through the open mouth of a crocodile. This is a part of our history that you will NEVER see in any textbook or any class.
