Biking While Black Film Screening

Viewing the state of our streets as a public health crisis that disproportionately affects Black lives, the documentary "Biking While Black" (running time 40 minutes) looks at Black cyclists and BIPOC community organizations in Los Angeles who are paving new roads to tackle myths about bike riding, improve local conditions, and celebrate Black joy on two wheels. Director/co-producer Yolanda Davis-Overstreet explores inclusion in outdoor activities, the making of safe streets, and avenues for mobility rooted in justice and equity.

Q&A/discussion with filmmaker Yolanda Davis-Overstreet will follow the Worcester screening, which is sponsored by Quinsigamond Community College and hosted by the Major Taylor Association with the support of MassBike, in partnership with Worcester Earn-A-Bike, Worcester Majors, Landry's Bicycles, Worcester Caribbean American Carnival Association, WalkBike Worcester, 508 Forever Young, Major Taylor Museum, Worcester NAACP, and YWCA of Central MA. Admission and parking at North High are free. Seating is general admission. Everyone gets a chance to win door prizes.
