The untold story of blacks in the American West will be on display at the Booth Western Art Museum beginning this weekend.

"The Black West: Buffalo Soldiers, Black Cowboys and Untold Stories" debuts on Dec. 20 at the 80,000-square-foot Cartersville museum and will feature 65 works of art by 16 contemporary black artists. The exhibit runs through March 22.

Also running with the exhibit is "Bronze Buckaroos: Mythic Images of the Black West," which features 25 movie posters of Hollywood's portrayals of the black Western experience. Several of the films also will be screened.

Exhibit organizers say it is the largest of its kind ever assembled and highlights black explorers, lawmen, rodeo stars, outlaws and women.
