Many Black Cowboys Developed Their Skills in Africa, not America: Little Known Facts About Black Cowboys | Rewinding Black

Many Black Cowboys Developed Their Skills in Africa, not America: Little Known Facts About Black Cowboys | Rewinding Black | Archaeology, Culture, Religion and Spirituality | Scoop.it

The cowboy remains one of the most popular figures in American culture. Whether chasing bad guys or herding cattle or sitting around the campfire, the cowboy has been immortalized in countless movies, books and television shows. However, he is seldom seen as African American.

 

Despite the lack of Black images, men of color did in fact handle cattle, tame horses, work ranches, encounter outlaws and star in rodeos. It’s estimated that anywhere from 5,000 to 8,000 Black cowboys were part of the legendary cattle drives of the 1800s.

 

According to the Handbook of Texas, Black cowboys have been a part of Lone Star State history since the early nineteenth century. Many were born into slavery, and brought to cattle country by white landowners. They continued to work in ranching after emancipation, and thousands eventually rode the cattle trails headed north.

 

Black cowboys were familiar with bigotry, but some found that they experienced less discrimination on the open range, as cowboys depended on each other regardless of their ethnicity.

 

There are more facts about Black cowboys.
