Brief History: Black Americana collectibles are items that were produced to depict African Americans in various often stereotypical and demeaning ways. Stereo cards, also known as stereoview cards, were a popular form of entertainment in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Viewers would look at these cards through a stereoscope, a device that would create a 3D-like image by presenting two slightly different photos (one for each eye) simultaneously. The title "Trouble Behind" and the imagery likely perpetuate stereotypes of the time, which today are recognized as offensive and racist. Collectors and historians value such items for their ability to shed light on societal views and attitudes of the past, but it is crucial to approach them with a deep understanding of their historical context and the harmful stereotypes they propagated.
