Cheers, music, laughter, joy and pride filled the Industry Hills Expo Center during the 38th Anniversary Bill Pickett Invitational Rodeo on July 16-17. The all-Black rodeo was created in 1984 by Lu Vason with the goal of “challenging the false perception of an absentee presence of Blacks in the development of the West.”
