Ride For Justice
The National Association of Buffalo Soldiers & Troopers Motorcycle Clubs held Rides for Justice across the country Sunday, including in Charlotte.
Buffalo Soldiers of Charlotte organized a ride from University City Boulevard to Marshall Park in uptown Charlotte and invited the public to ride with them. Once the group arrived at Marshall Park, they kneeled for 8 minutes and 46 seconds to honor the memory of George Floyd and other victims of police brutality and systemic racism. The group rides under the name Buffalo Soldiers & Troopers in honor of the black soldiers who served in the United States military following the Civil War. There are 122 chapters across the country.
