William H. "Billy" West

He was known as the "Progressive Minstrel", and was the sole producer of "The Richest and Costliest Minstrel Organization in Existance". He produced "West's Big Minstrel Jubilee", which featured some of the leading performers of the day, always ending with the cast, in "Black-Face", singing songs of the period.
