The Yeehaw Agenda: The Rise of South-Western Fashions and The Meaning of the Black Cowboy
In When I Get Home, Solange’s 2019 follow-up to her Grammy award-winning album A Seat at the Table, images of Black cowboys are intermixed with images of techno futures and the sprawling metropolis of Houston, Texas. Centering Blackness in the imagery of Southern rodeos, jockeying, and horseback riding, the visual album features Solange and an assortment of others in the aesthetic trappings of the Southwestern United States.
