Ethnography, Race, Imperialism, Display

    Describes a visit to the offices of the Review of Reviews by 'almost the first South African natives who have ever visited this country'. In their nation-wide tour, the native choir, 'clad in the costumes of their ancestors', have 'succeeded in creating widespread interest, and have produced a perfectly new sensation' among 'the somewhat wearied public of the old country'.
