Ira Frederick Aldridge by James Northcote, 1826

"Aldridge was born in New York and educated at the New York African Free School, where he began to develop an interest in theatre. He came to Britain in 1824, and first appeared on the London stage in 1825 playing the role of Prince Oroonoko of Africa in the melodrama The Revolt of Surinam, or A Slave’s Revenge. In 1833, he made his West End debut playing Othello. Audiences were positive but reviewers found the idea of a black actor shocking and the play was soon cancelled. Aldridge was better received elsewhere and made several successful European tours, becoming one of the highest paid actors in the world. His subsequent reputation led to a triumphant return to the London stage in 1855. He died on tour in Poland.”
