Sacramento Guild Theater

Biking While Black is more than just a mode of transportation; it's a mobility justice movement that celebrates the resilience, strength, and spirit of the Black community is a mobility justice movement that seeks to empower BIPOC bicyclists, dismantle systemic barriers, and reimagine a world where cycling is a source of joy, freedom, and safety for all. Through the power of storytelling, community engagement, and advocacy, Biking While Black is changing the narrative and transforming the cycling landscape. 

Since September 2021, the film screening of BIKING WHILE BLACK: HOW SAFE ARE BLACK LIVES BICYCLING? has traveled on the virtual waves of YouTube, and varied social media platforms, as well as has been screened in Detroit at the Better Cities Film Festival, in Oakland at the California Bicycle Summit, and now it's coming to Sacramento's Gild Theatre in Sacramento’s historic neighborhood, Oak Park!

The film will be followed by a discussion with the film producer, Yolanda Davis-Overstreet and a community panel discussion.

Sponsored by: Civic Thread, Sacramento Area Bicycling Association, UC Davis, Public Scholarship Engagement, and UC Institute for Transportation Studies
