Livestream replay: Lynne Tolman, President of the Major Taylor Association

Watch the livestream replay with Lynne Tolman, President of the Major Taylor Association, and hear about the history of American bicycle racer Marshall Walter "Major" Taylor, the world’s first black sports superstar.

"Life is too short for a man to hold bitterness in his heart." - Marshall W. "Major" Taylor

As world cycling champion in 1899, American sprint champion in 1900, and numerous track cycling records, Major Taylor (1878-1932) and his lasting legacy has been an inspiration to cycling worldwide. However, his legacy was not without its fair share of challenges. In the Jim Crow era of strict racial segregation, Taylor had to fight prejudice just to get on the starting line. He faced closed doors and open hostility with remarkable dignity. Hear more about his story and the work of the Association.
