An exhibit on the role African Americans played in settling the West has opened in Dallas. “Black Cowboys: An American Story” opens Saturday at the African American Museum at Fair Park.

The exhibit includes dozens of pictures, films, pieces of clothing, and equipment used by Black cowboys.

“The master narrative has tended to exclude African Americans so much that most people think the only thing Black people do is play sports, sing, and dance,” chief operating officer of the museum Marvin Dulaney said.

Dulaney said African Americans accounted for 30% of the cowboys working to bring cattle to market.

“They were part and parcel of the work that had to be done to get the cattle from Texas to Kansas City and further north on the Chisholm Trail,” he said.
