Stand up…..Loud and Proud!
"Will all the REAL MC's.... PLEASE STAND UP?"
Wait, why did almost the entire bike community stand up? Let's try that again. Maybe everyone misunderstood me. Let me try that again, but I'll say it a little different.
Peep Da Scene....
Growing-up in and around Harley biker culture, there was never any talk of African American riders– let alone that may actually have a part in contributing to American motorcycling culture. It was like Black riders flat-out didn’t exist. Now finally, their incredible story is starting to emerge through books like Soul On Bikes and the Black Chrome exhibit at California African American Museum. The images and accounts are not just amazing to look at and enjoy– they are also incredibly inspiring. Many thanks to The Vintagent (one of my favorite blogs) and The Onyx Rider from which many of the pics & stories came.
