Did you know that there were Human Zoos on display in Europe and America from the 1870’s to the 1950’s? These public exhibits of humans,often called Negro Villages, usually showed indigenous people in a so-called natural or primitive state. The displays often emphasized the cultural differences between Europeans of Western civilization and non-European peoples.  Above is a photo from Amsterdam Holland around 1890, of an African child in one of these Human Zoo exhibits,being fed like an animal by white spectators.
