black history month

How many of you are familiar with America's first black sports superstar, Major Taylor? He was one of the biggest stars in bicycle racing in the early 1900s. Today there are clubs and organizations in a number of cities that honor his memory. Here in Chicago, we have a Major Taylor bike club and a trail named after him. If you haven't yet checked out the trail (partially on streets), go for a bike ride. Look for the mural on a building at 111th St.
