About the event
Viewing the state of our streets as a public health crisis that disproportionately affects Black lives, the documentary "Biking While Black" (running time 40 minutes) 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. Director/co-producer Yolanda Davis-Overstreet explores inclusion in outdoor activities, the making of safe streets, and avenues for mobility rooted in justice and equity.
