About this program -

Major Taylor: Champion of the Race retraces the extraordinary life and legacy of an American civil rights pioneer who defied the odds and set over 20 world records in speed cycling during the challenging era of Jim Crowe America. In his early 20s, Major Taylor not only secured the world cycling championship and the American cycling crown, but also shattered numerous world speed cycling records. All of this was accomplished while facing relentless racial pressures.
