Join the Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota, Move Minneapolis, Move Minnesota, The Cultural Wellness Center and Our Streets Minneapolis for a film screening and discussion with director Yolanda Davis-Overstreet :

Biking  While Black is a 2-series short documentary film centering on the daily  experiences that Black lives encounter while bicycling. The first short  film (9 minutes) Biking While Black: HOW SAFE ARE BLACK LIVES  BICYCLING? was released in September 2021 by community organizer and  mobility justice advocate, Yolanda Davis-Overstreet, and her team. And  the second short (29.09 minutes) was released in September 2022 – Biking  While Black: CONTINUING TO RIDE THROUGH DECRIMINALIZATION,  DISENFRANCHISEMENT, AND GENTRIFICATION.

The duo-short films center  around the existing mobility and racial justice issues, while uplifting  Black bicyclists, catalyzing partnerships among mobility justice  advocates, and thoughtfully addresses local experiences. The film’s  narrative increases understanding of planning issues in Los Angeles by  centering the question “How safe are Black lives while cycling?”  Residents and mobility justice advocates share raw and personal  experiences as well as data in this film to illustrate the deep need for  planning processes rooted in racial justice.

Discussion with  director Yolanda Davis-Overstreet will accompany the screening. Stick  around for the afterparty at Town Hall Tap.

This event will follow current CDC COVID-19 guidelines; masking is strongly encouraged. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available. Please be aware of comfort and risk-levels in an indoor environment.
