Event Details

History Meets the Present

Mayor Leon Anderson of the all-Black town of Grayson, Oklahoma speaks with riders during the inaugural Black Towns ​Motorcycle Tour September 2019.

Gary "Lil G" Jenkins of the platinum R&B group Silk,  Arkee Hodges, founder of the Black Achievement Fund, and others listen diligently.

Among the mayor's first priorities is to raise capital to get the town converted from propane to natural gas, which is less expensive.
