A manual written for middle to high school-age students to accompany the Chemcraft Chemical Magic Set. Includes 58 magic-themed experiments for the user to "amaze [their] friends by producing odors, invisible inks, and scores of other tricks which are equally mysterious. Complete directions are given for presenting a Chemcraft Magic Show including suggestions for stage settings, costumes, suitable 'patter' and publicity."
The instructions for performing a Chemcraft Magic Show direct the users to enact roles characterized by racist stereotypes, cultural appropriation, and blackface. The manual also uncritically suggests that users role-play enslavement. The work's illustrations include racist caricatures as well as a depiction of blackface.
