Stateline: Cowboys Of Color

Jan 26, 2015

The cowboy is an American icon. The Hollywood image of the cowboys is lone, rugged and white, but in reality the old west was very diverse, and many of the cowboys were African-American or Hispanic.

Every year, culturally diverse cowboys from all over the country come to the Cowboys of Color Rodeo in Oklahoma City.

STATELINE introduces up and coming African-American rodeo cowboys who call Oklahoma home. Rodeo is growing into a major-league sport and a big part of that bright future will include the "Cowboys of Color."
