The Untold West: The Black West

from 29.99

Narrated by Danny Glover, The Untold West: The Black West is episode two of a three- part TBS series entitled The Untold West. This episode salutes the achievements of a handful of nearly- forgotten African-American cowboys and frontiersmen who took part in the taming of the frontier. The stories and achievements of several larger than life heroes and heroines are portrayed through realistic re-enactments, among them Pony Express rider Mary Fields and Bill Pickett, bronco riding champion and one of the greatest rodeo performers of all time. Told through rare archival photographs, contemporary journals and diaries and the eyewitness recollections of singer Herb Jeffries, who starred in some of the earliest Black cowboy movies in Hollywood, the film provides a fascinating look at a little-known part of our country’s history.
