History of the Banjo
The Banjo was brought to America by African slaves.  It was used mainly by them until the banjo became more popular in the mid nineteenth century.  Early minstrel shows usually had a banjo player with a fiddle, tambourine and guitar. The style of banjo playing that was often used was called stroke style.
 
Later on, a new style of banjo playing known as guitar style became popular because guitarists began learning the banjo.  Slowly but surely, the banjo was less commonly referred to an instrument of slaves and began to become common among the middle and upper-class.
Samuel Swain Stewart was an instrument maker in Philadelphia. He made some of the best banjos and published articles favorable to the banjo.  The name of his magazine was Stewart's Banjo and Guitar Journal. 
 
The popularity of finger-style banjo lasted for many years but it eventually faded. Around the time of the first World War, jazz took over.
