Life and Legacy of Mr. Paul W. Stewart <p>This documentary is a one on one conversation with the late Paul W. Stewart about the start and history of the Black American West Museum and the great migration west.</p> <p>Directed and produced by local film maker<br />DEVON JOHNSON</p> <p>As a child, Mr. Stewart said he always had to be an Indian when his group of friends played "Cowboys and Indians," everybody knows there's no such thing as a black cowboy," Stewart said. "So I just thought that was the way things were out west. It wasn't until I came to Denver as an adult that I came face to face with a real-life black cowboy."</p> <p>From black miners to railroad workers to the Buffalo Soldiers, their worth in the west is on display at the Black American West Museum &amp; Heritage Center right here in historic Five Points, Denver, CO - Since the 1950s, Mr. Stewart brought to life the old west and the contributions African Americans made to the migration west.</p> 3091 California St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center
