Throughout history, African Americans have had a defining impact on the culture of motorcycling from William B. Johnson, the first African American Haley-Davidson dealer, to Bessie Stringfield, the first African American female to ride solo cross-country on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
This year, Harley-Davidson celebrated the contributions of African Americans to the culture of motorcycling during Black History Month by hosting “Brothers of the Bike,” a one-time exhibit at The 40/40 Club in New York City, featuring archival photos, video, customized motorcycles and the city’s most prominent African American riders, media and influencers.
