The Story Of The Chitlin` Circuit

In jedem Buch über Soul Musik in den USA wird der Chitlin` Circuit erwähnt, der in der Zeit der Rassentrennung Auftrittsmöglichkeiten für afroamerikanische Künstler bot. 

Entstehungsgeschichte, Filmausschnitte, Zusammenhänge.

 „The “chitlin’ circuit” is the collective name given to the string of performance venues throughout the eastern, southern, and upper mid-west areas of the United States that were safe and acceptable for African American musicians, comedians, and other entertainers to perform in during the age of racial segregation in the United States (…) The name derives from the soul food item chitterlings (stewed pig intestines) and is also a play on the term “Borscht Belt” which referred to a group of venues popular with Jewish performers during the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s.“
