One of my *favorite* myths about the “American west” is that it was white. 1) the American west was northern Mexico 2) slavery was abolished in Mexico in 1829 (yes that makes Texas history even more fucked up) .
The “American west” was Indigenous, Black, mestizo, AND Asian.

Ellis “Mountain Man” Harris from ”The Black Cowboy exhibition for nycthrive ・・・
"ORIGIN STORIES" Father's Day edition by studiomuseum educator nelarte for #KindnessBeatsTheVirus | Ellis “Mountain Man” Harris from “The Black Cowboy” exhibition

From November 2016 to March 2017, The Studio Museum in Harlem showcased “The Black Cowboy" exhibition curated by Amanda Hunt. Cowboy offered a snapshot of Black communities with long histories of keeping and training horses, represented primarily through photographs and cinematic materials.
.
This photo of Ellis Harris was one in a series of black and white photos by Brad Trent. The portraits ran in The Village Voice, and feature members of the New York chapter of the Federation of the Black Cowboys (FBC). FBC was a New York City-based community that shares the legacy cowboy ancestors with African-American city youth through mentoring, rodeos, and school visits. A long-standing member of FBC, Harris became a cowboy after watching a black rodeo in Harlem in the 1970s.
