The Comedia Repertory Theatre in Palo Alto was the site of this Mime Troupe consciousness-raising minstrel show. The two-sided postcard advertised Ronnie Davis' 'Civil Rights in a Cracker Barrel,' a fast-moving commentary on civil rights by an integrated cast in blackface that challenged convention and good taste.
