DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Legislature is marking Black History Month in true Western fashion - by honoring black cowboys and ranchers.

The state House planned an observation Friday to honor the cowboys and the Black American West Museum in Denver.

The House is also inviting some black professional rodeo cowboys.

Finally, the celebration wouldn’t be complete without former Speaker Terrance Carroll. The Democrat was Colorado’s first black speaker and is an avid horseman.
