The Uncle Junior Project is a community-driven digital exhibit celebrating the history of Black people in the American circus. It honors the achievements of the many extraordinary individuals and groups in the African-American circus community, including clowns.

We at Play the Fool suggest you start with the documentaries about the extraordinary clowns Danise Payne and Onionhead.
