Details

Before Rosa Parks took her historic bus ride and before Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, and Huey P. Newton and the Black Panthers stood bravely for equal rights, the East Bay Dragons MC risked life and limb during the days when it was a revolutionary act for a black man to ride a Harley chopper. Written by Tobie Levingston, the club’s original founder, Soul on Bikes offers a slice of underground American and African-American history you’re unlikely to read in any textbook.

Levingston and his colorful cast of misfits and comrades are an all-black, all-Harley, all-chopper group of motorcyclists who have found more than their fair share of violence and redemption on the battlegrounds of urban America—and their legacy is an important untold portion of African-American history. Soul on Bikes recounts the club’s adventures with humor, attitude, and, most important, soul.
