A Scrap in Black and White1903

  • 3.3
Inter-racial boxing was a flashpoint in the worlds of politics and sports, as Jack Johnson would demonstrate just a few years later. One way to make light of these tensions (but also to extend them) was to displace such encounters onto adjacent subject matter, such as a match between two young boys. As the title's play on words suggests, the tone is meant to be playful. Here, as elsewhere (see TURNING THE TABLES), youths have not yet been socialized into the highly constrained social structure of the adult world.
