Cowboys in Compton? Yes! Horses in Philadelphia? Yes!
The traditional Black Cowboys of the Old West have come a long way!
We’ll talk about this and more on June 19th @ 6pm
Plus, we’ll watch two videos on this topic and have special guest Melinda Marie Jette, Professor of History at Franklin Pierce.
Optional reading @ the library: The Journal of Joshua Loper, a Black Cowboy by Myers and a NYT article on Compton.
Pushing the Limits is a reading, viewing and discussion program for adults in communities served by rural libraries, made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation
