The Bill Picket Rodeo is an African American rodeo that takes place all over the country. The founder of the rodeo, Lu Vason (who passed away earlier this year), played a key part in helping African Americans become part of the professional rodeo circuit.

Here’s a beautiful selection of images from the most recent rodeo in Los Angeles, by photographers Shaughn Crawford and John Dubois. Have a look at the images below.
