James Pierson Beckwourth: Black Mountain Man; Gaudy Liar?
After an intro by Dan Ward, Rotarian Bob Meroney will bring to life the history of a man with Colorado ties whose life was so colorful that it defied belief.  James Pierson Beckwourth, (1798-1866) was born a slave in Frederick County, VA.  His father was Jennings Beckwith, a plantation owner, who raised James as his own.  At an early age he trapped the frontier in Missouri and then moved west to work for the Rocky Mountain Fur Company.
