Vintage Black Heroes: The Chisholm Kid

The first black cowboy to be featured in a comic strip, The Chisholm Kid appeared from 1950 – 1954 in the Pittsburgh Courier’s comic insert. To mark the 150th anniversary of the Chisholm Trail – and to pay homage to the 5,000 – 9,000 black cowboys who drove cattle along the trail from Texas to Kansas following the Civil War – this exhibition features panels from the original comic strip. Known as the “Lone Fighter for Justice for All,” the namesake hero of The Chisholm Kid was portrayed as a positive black character equal to contemporaries like Hopalong Cassidy, Dick Tracy, Buck Rogers, and Flash Gordon a full decade before the Civil Rights Movement in America.
