The final chapter begins with a survey of ragtime-era novelty songs about African American opera lovers. It continues with an examination of songs commenting on European fascination with ragtime and with the music's appeal to white Americans. Emerging from these songs is a sense that in its popular music the United States was developing its own musical culture, worthy of standing alongside the high cultural legacy of Europe.
