According to Wikipedia, "blackface is a form of theatrical makeup used predominantly by performers of non-African descent to portray a caricature of a dark skinned person of African descent"

Wikipedia has its good points and bad points, but ultimately it's only as reliable as the information someone types into it. I would say that definition is in need of a whole lot of updating.

Dark make-up is not the same as blackface.

In situations like this, in our current culture, yes it is.
