 Black History Moment
One in four cowboys was Black, despite the stories told in popular books and movies. In fact, its believed that the real “Lone Ranger” was inspired by an African American man named Bass Reeves.  Reeves had been born a slave but escaped to the West during the Civil War where he lived in what was then known as Indian Territory. He eventually became a Deputy U.S. Marshall, was a master of disguise, an expert marksman, had a Native American companion, and rode a silver horse.
