Re: Negro Geography in the West

I just wanted to add a couple of interesting links that might be enjoyable reading. One is a short bio of Black cowboy George Mcjunkin, here's a short excerpt and the link:
“An expert bronc rider, George was one of the best ropers and cow hands of this country. When he died, he was buried at the Folsom Cemetery, Folsom, New Mexico.”
The other is a blog about a traveler and his experience as he discovered a landmark in Maryland called "Negro Mountain,"
again an excerpt and the link:
"Some Thoughts on Negro Mountain
by Christopher Bracey
On this trip, I was unusually fresh during the last leg through western Maryland. The drive is challenging at this point, as it takes you through winding mountain passes. I happened to be on the cell phone with my brother when I passed a sign indicating a most peculiar point of interest – NEGRO MOUNTAIN.
I mentioned this to my brother, and he quipped “you’d better not stop.”
Turns out that I wish I had."
