I'm a Black Cowboy. This is My Story.        Video        Op-Docs        The New York Times        5 August 2020

 

Cowboys are among the most iconic figures of the American West.

They’re mythologized as strong, independent people

who live and die by their own terms on the frontier.

And in movies, the people who play them are mostly white.

But as with many elements of Americana,

the idea of who cowboys are is actually whitewashed

— scholars estimate that in the pioneer era,

one in four cowboys were black.

The historian Quintard Taylor writes about how before then,

enslaved people

"were part of the expansion of the livestock industry

into colonial South Carolina,

passing their herding skills down through the generations

and steadily across the Gulf Coast states to Texas."

In Dillon Hayes's "All I Have to Offer You Is Me,"

we meet Larry Callies,

who comes from a long line of cowboys. Growing up in Texas,

Callies dreamed of becoming like Charley Pride,

the first African-American inductee in the Country Music Hall of Fame.

As with the cowboy, there’s an assumption of who makes up country music,

despite its diverse history.

The breakthrough of artists like Lil Nas X, Jimmie Allen and Kane Brown

has returned attention to the contributions of black artists to the genre.

Callies’s journey shows what we lose

when we don’t acknowledge the full breadth of history.

An Aunt Jemima advertisement

in The Saturday Evening Post on May 10, 1919.

 

The character would outlast Green for 87 years on labels and boxes,

until last month, when Quaker Oats announced her retirement.
