Buffalo Bill: How his Tumultuous Past turned into Box-office Gold

This is a hybrid virtual/in-person event.

Register on eventbrite.

Buffalo Bill has gone down in history as one of the greatest showmen who ever lived. However, before Bill Cody was famous (and even afterwards), he had a few of his own demons to put to rest. Led by returning presenter and historian, Randi Samuelson-Brown, this talk will focus on Buffalo Bill’s earlier years as the west opened, his enduring support of social justice and his later years when a rather tumultuous past turned into box-office gold, despite a rather precarious business sense. He can probably thank his wife for that last part.

Randi Samuelson-Brown is a native of Colorado, originally from Golden. Her ancestors came to the state in the 1880s/1890s, a fact she is proud of. She is the author of The Beaten Territory, an award-nominated historical fiction set in a vice-riddled Denver and Leadville during the 1890s. She lives in Denver, CO.
