Ken Kincaid was an actor in western films for 30 years. In 1987, while visiting his sister in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood he was shot and nearly killed. This ended his acting career and started him on a path towards anti-gun violence advocacy. He still lives in Uptown, just blocks from the site of the shooting.

After a chance meeting on a train, I got to know Ken and was fascinated by how he maintains a strong sense of identity as a cowboy while living in a very dense, urban environment. His home was especially interesting, filled with carefully arranged mementos of his past. The more I got to know him, the more I felt that there had been a merger between his real character and the cowboy he played in the movies.
