Logbook: Along Vesterbro a negro walked
Some 100 years ago, there was not much diversity among the Danish population. The only thing that separated people from each other was height, build and attire, so it caught the attention of many when more colorful people became to mix with the high and the low alike. When Riise’s pharmacy in Charlotte Amalie in 1917 moved to Denmark, some of the staff moved with it, including Oswald Heath. He was a young, hard-working and intelligent man, and quite naturally, coming as he was from the West Indies, black as night. His skin tone caused such a stir that even the great Danish illustrator Robert Storm Petersen made a drawing portraying the outcry in Vejle, and a popular song in the revue sketches went: “Along Vesterbro a negro walked”. This would, of course, not have happened today.
