Deadwood Dick is the nickname of Nat Love, a famous black cowboy who has made Deadwood his home. He acquired the moniker after winning the roping, shooting, and wild-horse-riding competition at the Centennial celebration. Nat runs a saloon frequented by
many of the black miners in town. Though folks in the West have mostly put aside their prejudices these days, Nat is the de facto leader of the black community on the rare occasions when someone forgets their manners.
