Schools Only Performance

The unsettled West of the 1860s provides a new life and new dreams for Blue, a freedom-seeking enslaved person who escapes to Texas to become one of America’s first cowboys. This moving musical and theatrical event spotlights a significant moment in American History, when black cowboys lived, helped settle the West while shaping the country. Integrating fiction with historical fact, each song represents a different page in this complicated chapter of American history. Award-winning musician Allan Harris (hailed as “my favorite singer” by Tony Bennett), along with fellow musicians tell the untold story of the Black West, empowering and inspiring with a story of perseverance, hope, and freedom.
