Caldonia Concert and Film Posters

 At the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Arts, they had an exhibition called "Caldonia Concert and Film Posters" These vintage posters were from the Ralph DeLuca Collection. DeLuca is a collector and appraiser of memorabilia.

What is cool about these posters is that celebrates the performances and films of African-American performers from the 1920's to the 1970's. These posters highlight was known as the "Chitlin Circuit". The Chitlin Circuit was a collection of performance venues throughout the eastern, midwestern and southern areas of the United States where African-American performers could play during racial segregation that lasted through the 1960's:

It was so very cool to see these posters and learn a little bit about the history of these great performers. 


  1. Very cool pesters! An interesting cross-section of time and performers. One can also see how the posters evolved over time.
