Broadside for Out of Bondage, 1876

About the Project

Broadside posters were made to advertise events. Put up one week, by the next week they were often torn down or covered up with another poster. However, those that were saved for posterity often provide us with a glimpse into everyday life in the past. Theater posters provide us with information about the shows, the actors, and the audience. Help us transcribe this broadside for Out of Bondage, produced by the Hyers Sisters, the first black women to gain success on the American stage.
