 A A Look at Black Cowboys and the Contributions of African-Americans to the Expansion of the American West

 

“We Went West, Too” is an innovative and comprehensive program that utilizes a series of presentations to incorporate hands-on, interactive approach to learning forgotten aspects of American history.  This curriculum is focused to the intermediate (4th - 5th) and middle school (6th - 8th) grades.
