“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” 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.
With ideas applicable in other cities and towns, the film explores
- inclusion in outdoor activities,
- the making of safe streets,
- and avenues for mobility rooted in justice and equity.
Running time 40 minutes. The Worcester screening is at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 25, at North High School, 140 Harrington Way, Worcester, MA.
Q&A/discussion with filmmaker Yolanda Davis-Overstreet will follow the screening.
