DeBoraha Akin-Townson (Barrel Racing)

DeBoraha Akin (Townson) became the first Black cowgirl to compete in the International Professional Rodeo Finals in 1990. Today she is the only African American Woman to compete with a professional card in the WPRA (Women’s Professional Rodeo Association) at PRCA rodeos throughout the United States.

Bill Pickett (about 1920) was a legendary cowboy from Taylor, Texas of black and Indian descent. Born in the Jenks-Branch community on the Travis County line, he died in 1932, near Ponca City, Oklahoma. Pickett performed from 1905 to 1931 for the Miller brother's 101 Ranch Wild West Show, one of the great shows in the tradition begun by William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody in 1883. The 101 Ranch Show introduced bulldogging (steer wrestling), an exciting rodeo event invented by Bill Pickett.
