Volume 3 of South by Northwest deals with African American cowboys in cattle drives, focusing on the stories of George Jackson, George Fletcher, and Old Charlie, who drove cattle from Texas to Montana. It draws from the stories of Walter Jackson, himself a Montana cowboy and a son of a cowboy

The initial $248,000 contract for these films was awarded to Washington State University's KWSU-TV, to produce five docudramas based upon the stories of black Americans in the early northwest, to be aimed at middle-school students. Based upon research headed by WSU Professors Quintard Taylor and Talmadge Anderson, and produced by media expert Nate Long, five initial half-hour television programs were completed in 1976, and three more programs followed in 1981. South by Northwest was cited for "outstanding participation" by the American Revolution Bicentennial Administration, and won a Corporation for Public Broadcasting Award and a New York Film Festival Award.

In 2010, Washington State University Libraries' Manuscripts, Archives, and Special Collections (MASC) digitized these eight productions. The films are held in the WSU Libraries as VHS tapes; this one is call number vhs17486v3pt1.

Information presented here about these programs was drawn primarily from "South by Northwest: An Educational Television Series Designed to Teach Regional Black History," Integrated Education v. 18, pg. 94-96, 1980, by Dennis A. Warner, et al, as well as from KWSU's Radio and Television Services Records: http://www.wsulibs.wsu.edu/masc/finde... and http://www.wsulibs.wsu.edu/MASC/finde....
