Dom Flemons is known as the American Songster, a Grammy Award-winning folk artist, and founding member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops. His new album, "Black Cowboys", on the Smithsonian Folkways label sheds a light on the music, culture, and the complex history of the golden era of the Wild West. The songs presented are meant to take the listener on an illuminating journey from the trails to the rails of the old west. This is a century old story that follows the footsteps of the thousands of African American pioneers that helped build the United States of America.
