Oakland Black Cowboy Association

Posted Oct 10 2007

This past Saturday saw the latest rendition of an Oakland tradition 33 years in the making. Unfortunately, most people are not aware that many cowboys throughout the history of this country have been African American, up until this very day. As one way to keep awarenss of this rich history alive the OBCA holds an annual parade in downtown Oakland that starts and ends in DeFremry Park. It was my first time attending and I'll definitely be back! Check out the Oakland Tribune article.

This tradition has been going on for 33 years? I honestly never heard of it, which is very strange. I would have expected such a thing to come up on the news, at least. It seems like most people were having fun. I don't see enough people on horses, though.
