BIKING WHILE BLACK chronicles the determination of communities and the fight to continue to ride through decriminalization, disenfranchisement, and gentrification. 

This documentary is part of a weekly film series over Black History Month, contextualizing important moments and issues that have affected both Black histories and futures.
