Atlanta Black Rodeo Association

ABRA was founded in 1991 by Keith Roberts. The goal is to preserve this aspect of African American heritage, as well as to become a positive role model for minority youth.

A traditional rodeo features calf roping, barrel racing, steer wrestling, bareback riding, and of course bull riding. “For anyone who is doing this now”, Keith Roberts told us, “somebody helped them. If we don’t pass this on then it’s hard for these kids to do it by themselves. So if we don’t make this available to them, then nine times out of ten it’s not going to happen.”
