Buy Golly!: The History of the Golliwog
Well-known actor and singer Clinton Derricks has been collecting golliwogs and black memorabilia for over twenty years. He was attracted to the subject by his concern for the way in which generations of black people have been treated by western society.
This is a comprehensive study of his collection containing hundreds of examples of black imagery, covering dolls, books, advertising, posters, ceramics, postcards and much more. The book will form an important reference source for librarians, collectors, dealers and all those interested in social history and the emancipation of black people around the world.
