The [[African Minstrels]] was a [[minstrels]] group in Cape Town in ''circa'' 1862.
== The company ==
Consisting of eight men under the leadership of [[Captain Heaven]] [["Coloured Captain" Heaven]], they are reported as having performed an interlude during a performance of ''[[The Miller and His Men]]'' and ''[[Kiss in the Dark]]'' by officers and men from the [[11th Regiment]] in the [[Barracks Theatre]], Cape Town on Tuesday 2 December 1862.
Given the title borne by [[Captain Heaven]] the troupe may have been drawn from a division of African military personnel.
