PsalmsPlayed by Dohn Norwood


After escaping his plantation's destruction toward the end of the Civil War, Psalms was arrested for "vagrancy" and his sentence was sold to Thomas Durant and the Union Pacific. An outspoken, diligent worker, Psalms takes every opportunity to stand up for himself and his fellow freedmen. Appointed walking boss of the railroad's cut crew, Psalms becomes Elam's sounding board and takes a fierce pride in his role as de facto uncle of Elam's new baby.
