WHY WE RIDE!

The mission of the Black Towns Tour is...

 

To revitalize Historically All-black towns through education, entertainment and tourism while funding their
economic and community agendas.

The vision of the Black Towns Tour is...


To attain complete restoration of the 13 black towns in Oklahoma promoting and preserving the legacy of black towns nationwide.

 

WHERE WE RIDE!
 

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.

 

This unique tour is the only ride which allows you to visit the 13 Historically All-black towns of Oklahoma in ONE day!! The tour also stops by the historic Black Wall Street, Greenwood District, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. 

 

On Labor Day Weekend, September 4-6, 2020, the Black Towns Motorcycle Tour took place starting out in Northeastern Oklahoma. Participants lodged at Muskogee, OK, the nights of Sept. 4th & 5th. The Tour ended in Tatums, OK, on Sept. 6th with a music festival during the evening. Cars and bikes traveled the Red Leg, Green Leg and all 13 towns on Saturday, Sept. 5th. On Sunday, Sept. 6th, together, we all completed the Black Leg. 

 

Motorcycle riders from all over are welcome to join the tour with a goal of at least 500 participants each time out.  

Non-motorcycle riders are encouraged to participate by sponsoring a rider and/or attending the 13 Black Towns Music Festival which consists of a concert with Hip Hop and R&B acts advocating the restoration of black towns. The tour ends with festival style event taking place outdoors with specialty food & merchandise trucks & vendors!! NON RIDERS are also encouraged to join the tour in support of the #BlackTownsMatter movement 2020. EVERYONE GET IN YOUR CARS AND VISIT THE BLACK TOWNS!!

Plans for the 13 Black Towns Tour 2021 will be posted on January 1, 2021.
