Playing the Black cowboy Nat Love, Rochel Garner Coleman chronicles the journey of a former slave who joined thousands of others like him to explore and settle the West. From Love’s birth into slavery to his walk to freedom to how he won his cowboy name, this performance explores an uncommon narrative of the Old West while recreating a period in American history that has captivated generations ever since. Based on stories from Love’s autobiography, this one-man show was written by Rochel and underwent development at the Langston Hughes Center for the Arts in Seattle.
