Scope and Contents:
Held from June 26 - 29, 1989 at the Anacostia Museum, the teacher seminar consisted of lectures and workshops about black inventors and innovators, and their struggle for recognition. The lectures and workshops were led by experts in history and the patent process, and inventors. Sessions on critical thinking and teaching strategies were also part of the program. Curator Portia James highlighted the exhibition 'The Real McCoy: Afro-American Invention and Innovation 1619-1930.' Dr. West and C.R. Gibbs provided historical context about African American inventors. Pat Ives spoke about historical figures and the patent process, and Bessie Wiley discussed creativity and inventiveness. Other seminar participants included Fred Schmidt, Karen Skilman, young inventor Maurice Scales, Frank Price, inventor Cortland Dugger, and Dr. Jimmie Jackson.
Seminar. Related to exhibition 'The Real McCoy: Afro-American Invention and Innovation 1619-1930.' AV002059: dated 19890626. AV002131 and AV002058: undated. AV002151and AV002060: dated 19890629.
Biographical / Historical:
The exhibition - The Real McCoy: African-American Invention and Innovation, 1619-1930 - focused on outstanding black inventors, as well as anonymous innovators, who, as slaves, craftsmen and workers, made important contributions to the United States. Included are actual inventions, such an Jan Matzelieger's "shoe-lasting" machine, which revolutionized shoe production, and Garrett Morgan's safety hood and automatic traffic signal, forerunners of the modern gas mask and traffic stop light. The exhibition examines such topics as African influences on Colonial technology and how the slave system stymied technological innovation. Individual inventors such as Lewis Temple, Elijah McCoy, James Forten, and Norbert Rillieux are profiled. Also featured are artifacts from some of the expositions of the late 19th-century, which celebrated this new surge of black inventiveness. The exhibition was curated by Portia James and organized by the Anacostia Museum. It was held at the museum from May 1989 - May 1990.

Date:
1800-1915; undated
Summary:
The collection documents Marks's years as a harpist on the Midwestern minstrel circuit. It includes sheet music and song books, theater programs, posters announcing minstrel shows, newspaper articles and advertisements.
Scope and Contents:
The collection contains the personal and professional papers of musician Peter Marks dating primarily from the mid to late nineteenth century. These materials provide valuable insight into life before and after the Civil War mainly through correspondence and other primary sources documenting domestic activities. The materials also provide invaluable insight into how a musician was able to make a living teaching music and performing in classical music concerts, as well as, with minstrel troupes.

Minstrelsy, created in the early 1800s was a comedic form of entertainment using song, dance, skit, musical performances and other variety acts as part of the program. Shows would often change on a weekly basis and troupes would travel around the country performing their own unique talents. Before the Civil War minstrelsy was most often performed by a white person like Peter Marks in black face and tended to use characters that lampooned African Americans as stupid, lazy, clumsy, and superstitious. After the Civil War, however, minstrels were occasionally performed by African Americans, who were usually a part of a publicity stunt. Several advertisements in this collection include images of minstrels in blackface, as well as, playbills and programs. Peter Marks was during his time one of the most well known musicians to come out of the minstrelsy circuit working alongside many other big name performers.
Arrangement:
The collection is arranged into two series.

Series 1, Personal Papers, 1800s-1909; undated

Series 2, Professional Materials, 1849-1915; undated

Subseries 2.1, Playbills, Programs and Advertisements, 1863-1879; undated

Subseries 2.2, Sheet Music, 1843-1901; undated

Subseries 2.3, Publications, 1849-1915; undated
Biographical / Historical:
During his time, Peter Matthew Marks was said to have been one of the premier traveling minstrel musicians in America during the Civil War. Marks was born February 21, 1843 to parents William Augustus Marks and Anne Mooney (Marks) in Ireland. He grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. By the time, he was twenty he was a skilled musician in piano, harp, and guitar. Marks performed with various minstrel troupes in and around Cincinnati, Ohio. During the war, he served as a member of the Ohio militia for one month before leaving to continue his musical career. Marks met and married Mary "Emma" McKitrick. Mary "Emma" McKitrick was born October 29, 1841 in Hamilton Butler, Ohio to parents Daniel Mckitrick and Ruth Burlingame. Emma also had an aunt, Emily Burlingame and an uncle, Nathan Burlingame on her mother's side whom she communicated regularly with. Peter and Emma settled in Cincinnati and raised two sons Eugene (1871-?) and Ralph (1875-1950) Marks. While in Cincinnati, Marks performed the minstrelsy circuit working alongside many big name celebrities. He is associated with at least eight different minstrel troupes, including Carncross and Dixey's Minstrels, Burgess, Pendergast, Hughes, Donniker and La Rue's Minstrels, and Monitor Campbell's Minstrels. While his primary career was performing with troupes he also gave solo performances and provided private lessons. Peter Marks ultimately left the minstrel circuit and went on to become a professor at the Cincinnati College of music. He died in 1883.
