Black Cowboys Do Exist Believe It Or Not

An exhibition opened in Harlem Studio Museum tells a story you might have never heard.

If I ask you to describe a cowboy, you may mention a man wearing denim and can be seen galloping on horseback. And yes, he’ll be white.

An ongoing photography exhibition at the Studio Museum in Harlem tells the story of Black Cowboys attracting attention to the rare areas around the country where cowboy culture thrives today.



Artists like Brad Trent, Deanna Lawson and Ron Tarver would like to change the concept that equates cowboys with whiteness.


Most people remain unaware of the Black cowboys’ patriotic history and it is very important to give them a chance to change their point of view while celebrating the Black pride of course.
