Were All the Cowboys White? Finding Mexican and African American Cowboys

February 20 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm


In old movies and TV programs, all the cowboys seemed to be white. In reality, about 1 in 4 were men of color. This online presentation reviews the growth of horse and cattle handlers from early Mexico through the early 1900s in the U.S. What records can we find?

Presenter Janice Lovelace, Ph.D., has more than 30 years of experience in black history and genealogical research, and has presented nationally on research methodology, DNA and ethnic minority genealogy.
