Jamie Foxx's slave-turned-bounty hunter Django in this year's "Django Unchained" may be the fastest gun in the South, but he is definitely not the only black cowboy worth his salt. From as far back as the 1930s through the exploitation pictures of the '70s and into the present day, African Americans have been breaking the white cowboy stereotype by strapping on their own pair of spurs.

In anticipation of Quentin Tarantino's racially charged "southern" epic "Django," we're forming a posse of some of the most badass actors to ever climb on a horse and give filthy rustlers a fight. Have your pistols cocked, and get ready to ride, hombres, as we take a look back at the groundbreaking history of Black cowboys in film.
