Thomas Dartmouth Rice
(1808–1860)
Comedian in the blackface form of comedy of the 19th century. Because he developed an immediately popular song-and-dance routine playing the role of an old black slave called "Jim Crow", he has also been called "father of American minstrelsy".
Thomas Dartmouth Rice
