Black Cowboy exhibit at the Studio Museum in Harlem, 144 West 125th Street, though March 5th, 2017.  Mention the word “cowboy,” and the image that most often comes to mind—from American paintings, vintage films and television shows—is a lone ranger astride a noble white horse overlooking the plains of the Wild West. The exhibition Black Cowboy is a contribution toward overcoming the historical omission of African-American communities with long histories of keeping and training horses, and toward demonstrating that their tradition is alive and well today.  More information can be found on the Studio Museum site: LINK
