The first music video from Dom Flemons Black Cowboys is available now!
“Black Cowboys shines a light on a component of African-American history that is neither taught in schools nor part of the imagery associated with America’s western expansion. Flemons became interested in the subject around 2009. He came across a copy of The Negro Cowboys, a 1983 book by Philip Durham and Everett L. Jones, while visiting family in his native Arizona. He also started listening to the album Black Texicans: Balladeers & Songsters around the same time, which is a collection of field recordings by famed American ethnomusicologists John and Alan Lomax.”–SRIRAM GOPAL, Washington City Paper
