Juba by Stephen Burge Johnson
A historian researches in a library trying to find evidence of the dance of the great 19th century black tap dancer Juba. The documents come alive and tell their stories in a vague, self-serving and racist way - a story of a poor New York boy who makes it in the all-white Minstrel show, but ends up a skeleton on display in a museum.
