Synopsis by Kathleen Wildasin
The Emmy award-winning film and Cable Ace nominee The Untold West: The Black West is part of the three-volume The Untold West series. Directed by Nina Rosenblum and narrated by Danny Glover, this segment salutes the black cowboys of the western wilderness who fought alongside their Native American and white counterparts during the development of the frontier. The contributions of these nearly forgotten African-Americans are portrayed through realistic re-enactments, including a special segment on cowboy Bill Pickett, one of the best rodeo performers of all time. The Untold West: Outlaws, Rebels, and Rogues and The Untold West: Hot on the Trail are the other programs in the series.
