This posting for "Black History Month 2013 Pt.2"/ "For Harmon Loft Pt.7" will also be Part 32- B of the "Veteran's Spotlight" series, (PT.32- A HERE) ... as well as Part 18 of the "Taste of Texas" series ... to highlight and honour the Texas and United States "Buffalo Soldiers". This was also inspired for a Part 2 to 2013 Black History Month because of my neighbour's Curtis & Tabitha the other day when I was telling them about checking out the rodeo sometime at the Mesquite Rodeo Arena  ... I worked in Mesquite for nearly 7 year's in the printing industry as a pre- press specialist, and the rodeo was one of my main client's/ customer's ... I did all the pre- press layout's for advertisement, ticket's, flyer's, promotion's, etc to be printed for the rodeo event's. But Curtis kind of felt a lil out of touch with any environment like that, his wife Tabitha and him are African American who moved here from Chicago ... and they were a tad suprised and intrigued when I gave them a rundown on Black Cowboyz in Texas and a brief history of the Buffalo Soldiers. Both Curtis and his wife been to college even, yet hardly knew a thing about black cowboyz and/ or these soldier's at that. Curtis actually thought that maybe black history was a study of mine and I been to college even ... But no, unfortunately I never been to college or even high school for that matter, growing up in the street's basically ... but my education on this, is just like anything else ... just acquired through my interest on my own ... and I actually knew about this history before even the Chairman, Capt. Ken Pollard and many other Texan's ... it just isnt very talked about ... even the kid in the video below, sayz all they basically teach him in school about, is slavery and related. But yes ... I met and talked to quite a few black cowboys over the year's too. Enough from me ... more below ... Enjoy! {: )
