Description

This is a poster for the November, 1889 performances of the Fisk Jubilee Singers held at the Calcutta Opera House. The front features a header reading "The Fisk Jubilee Singers." A diamond-shaped design containing text is predominantly in the center of the obverse of the poster. The diamond is lined with the words "The Fisk Jubilee Singers" reading clockwise. Each side of the central diamond is allotted one of these words. An illustrated hand points to each of these words.
The reverse of this single sheet does not contain printed text, but an unknown inscriber has written in pencil "I suppose Mr. Loudin's Jubilee Singers. Calcutta, India. Miss Matson heard them. Pattie Malone with them. This is not the Fisk Jubilee Singers."
