The Life and Legacy of Marshall “Major” Taylor: Join our webinar and take action to honor his achievements 

Major Taylor was the first superstar of cycling. He was known as the fastest man on a bike and was a global phenomenon at a time when telegrams were the height of technology. 

Yet, because he was Black, Major Taylor faced prejudice and racism from the bicycling community, including the League of the time, as he pursued track records and world championships. 

Today, his legacy is unknown by many. We can take actions to change that. 

Representatives Jonathan L. Jackson and Jim Baird have introduced a bill to award Marshall “Major” Taylor with the Congressional Gold Medal, the highest honor Congress can bestow.

Join us for a webinar on May 28 at 3pm ET and learn more about why we should remember and honor Major Taylor’s remarkable achievements.
