In 1972 Harlem, a Black Rodeo show rides into Randall's Island, NY to perform in front of a large crowd of enthralled spectators. This critically acclaimed documentary captures that show, as well as one-on-one interviews with the rodeo performers themselves and various members of the audience. Muhammad Ali himself is also on hand, clowning his ways around the crowd and the cowboys, having a great time with all. The film also features an extended discussion by actor Woody Strode (Spartacus, John Ford's Sergeant Rutledge) about the long-suppressed history of the Black Cowboy. Black Rodeo from Jeff Kanew (Revenge of the Nerds) received critical acclaim in 1972 but has been rarely seen until now.
Film followed by panel with director Jeff Kanew, internet archivist Bri Malando, and Black Rodeo Riders.
