Photo Gallery: Cowgirls of the Delta

Just after the Civil War, one in four cowboys were African American, but this diversity has not been fairly represented in historical accounts. To this day, the cowboy and cowgirl identity retains a strong presence in many black communities, including in the Mississippi Delta. This gallery pays special attention to the cowgirls of the Delta, integral members of the local culture who are often overlooked.
