Recently while surfing internet I saw a report on London’s Human Zoo That took a place almost 9 years age. Caged and barely clothed, eight men and women monkeyed around for the crowds in an exhibit labeled “Humans” at the London Zoo.
In the meantime through searching human zoo, accidentally I have been introduced to a phenomenon called History Of Human Zoos.
Apparently during industrial revolution and creation of colonial narrative from early 18 century till 60 years ago. There were many exhibitions, camps, cages at sideshow attractions and zoos that dedicated to exposing as they called it the inferior races of different part of our planet. The savages. Or I should say people who weren’t white.
