Film Screening: "The Bicycle Corps: America's Black Army on Wheels"

Black History Month

  • Cost
The Bicycle Corps tells the story of the 25th Infantry's bicycle trip from Missoula, Montana, to St. Louis, Missouri in 1897. The African American infantry took the trip to test a theory that the bicycle would replace the horse in transporting men for the army. With archival film, photographs and interviews with historians, this program also examines the life of the African American soldier at the turn of the century, in particular First Sergeant Mingo Sanders, the main motivator of the enlisted men. Guest speaker will be announced at a later date.
