Film Showing: Biking While Black

Saturday, February 172:00—3:00 PMSaxe RoomMain Library3 Salem Square , Worcester, MA, 01608

An important look at the joys and challenges of biking while Black and the need for a transit future rooted in justice and equity. BIKING WHILE BLACK chronicles the determination of communities and the fight to continue to ride through decriminalization, disenfranchisement, and gentrification.

Filmmaker Yolanda Davis-Overstreet takes us on a journey to explore the devastating realities of Black lives on bicycles from community members most impacted, from over-policing to loss of life. We learn from local experts how this problem has been progressing and whether it is getting any better.


After the film, New England Cycling Coalition for Diversity (NECCD) President Randolph Williams and Vice President Rich Bourque will discuss the NECCD vision to help cycling organizations be more inclusive.
