Westerns with Significant Black Characters
A public collection moderated by MzeeShikamu
"Several historians have noted that one in five of the men referred to as cowboys were black. So, the omission of black characters in Westerns is another point of inaccuracy in the film industry. The story of one of America’s most eminent frontiersmen, Jim Beckwourth, formed the basis for 1951’s Tomahawk, which starred a white actor even though Beckwourth was black. The famous 1956 Western epic The Searchers was based on a black man named Britt Johnson. He was played by John Wayne."
