Almost a quarter of all wild west cowboys were African-American, and they were an indispensable part of building the American West. So linked to the work, the term "cow boy" was created because Blacks at the time were referred to as "boy." This week we take a look at Black American Cowboys in general, and Bass Reeves specifically. Reeves was the most accomplished, respected, and well-known cowboy-turned-US Marshall, capturing 3,000 criminals through disguise, detective work, and marksmanship. He was so revered that many give him credit for inspiring The Lone Ranger. Yes, that Lone Ranger. We also talk some news stuff, as always. Giddyup, and happy trails!
