This Ain’t Texas, But It Is A List of Black Western Films To Add To Your Watch List

Being Black and a cowgirl, or a cowboy, is nothing new. America has a rich history steeped in historical figures and change-makers who were “country”, bounty hunters, infamous law enforcers, homesteaders, and cowboys and cowgirls. From renowned law enforcer Bass Reeves, who was a runaway slave who eventually became a U.S. Marshall, to Stagecoach Mary, who was one of the first women to be a mail route carrier in America, the historical footprint of Black cowboys and cowgirls runs deep.
