Cowboys and Cowgirls Compete in Country's Only Touring Black Rodeo Competition
The Bill Pickett Rodeo, founded by Lu Vason in 1984, celebrates the history and contributions African-Americans have made to the rodeo.
Harold Williams Jr., 4, watches the arena before the start of competition.
CORRECTION (June 5, 3:02 p.m.): An earlier version of the headline on this article incorrectly described the Bill Pickett Rodeo. It is the country's only touring black rodeo competition, not the country's only black rodeo.
