About the event

Join hosts Pasadena Complete Streets Coalition, the NAACP Pasadena Branch, and Day One for a free screening of “Biking While Black: Continuing to Ride Through Decriminalization, Disenfranchisement, and Gentrification.”  This short documentary, directed by LA based director and Urban  Sustainabilist & Mobility Justice Strategist Yolanda  Davis-Overstreet, expands upon a previous short film and dialogue about  bicycling in Los Angeles by incorporating more narratives to dig deeper  into the solution-based storytelling and features the actions being  taken by some of our leading Black bicyclists and BIPOC community-based  organizations who are paving new roads to tackle the myths, the  community safety conditions in Los Angeles, and celebrating Black joy on  two wheels.

Following the screening, you’re invited to a  discussion with Ms. Davis-Overstreet, moderated by NAACP Pasadena  President Allen Edson. How does this film relate to Pasadena and what  can we learn from our neighbors in Los Angeles?

Light refreshments will be served prior to the screening.
