When Carter G. Woodson established Black History Month in the mid 1920s, the aim was to promote the untold contributions of Black Americans in the existing American narrative. And as long as there have been bicycles in America, there have also been people of color on bicycles.
But based on popular history, who would know it?
Join The Brown Bike Girl and cyclists of all colors at Red Lantern Bicycles shop and bar to catch up on the lesson of the all-Black 25th Infantry Bicycle Corps and their contribution to military history - the first ever test of the bicycle for wartime use by the US Army. And more.
The documentary for the evening feels little bit like 5th grade movie day. So we'll live be livening things up a couple rounds of games (with prizes) that are based on the movie and a special all night happy hour.
( Yeah, there's a bar in this bike shop. Score! )
