Note from page 533: 2. Setting up complicated rhythms by patting the feet on dancing boards, along with patting other parts of the body, was called "patting Juba." Juba was an African name given generically to black entertainers. See Roger D. Abrahams, Singing the Master: The Emergence of African American Culture in the Plantation South (New York, 1992), 94.
