Black Rodeo Show to Hit Virginia

When people think of rodeos, cowboys of color don’t usually come to mind.

But a June 3 show in Virginia at the Richmond Coliseum is sure to get people thinking differently about the rodeo circuit and fans of the culture.

Tagged “The Black Rodeo Show,” the one-night event, which starts at 7:30 p.m., is sponsored by the Southeastern Rodeo Association and will feature a soulful crew of professional cowboys and cowgirls — most whom hail from cities and states such as Texas, Oklahoma, Detroit, Chicago and St. Louis.

Show participants will be performing phenomenal feats of skill as they compete for $10,500 in prize money in categories that include bull riding, steer wrestling, bareback riding, calf roping, team roping and barrel racing. The show also includes special-performance categories of steer undecorating for cowgirls and junior barrel racing for the children.

During the show, touted as “family fun at its best,” fans will be entertained by a DJ spinning a classic and contemporary R&B soundtrack, a variety of rodeo clown antics and an old-school dance contest, culminating in the battle of the bulls, featuring generations of gentlemen of a certain age dancing circles around any young man who dares to challenge them.

According to rodeo officials, fans will be dressing in their finest interpretations of cowboy attire, adorned with sequins, spurs and all.
