“The Bull City Riders: Portraits of a Brotherhood”
By Freeman Long
September 4th- November 1st, 2023
Opening: October 20th, 6-8pm
These are portraits of the Bull City Riders, the oldest chartered Black motorcycle club in North Carolina.
The club, founded in 1977, broke the tradition of motorcycle clubs as white centered spaces, during a time when racial inequalities undermined the Black community.
With its history of adventures on two wheels and community service, the BCR exemplifies Black men’s foundational role in building Durham.
Photographer, Freeman Long is a DAC instructor and filmmaker whose work includes, portraits, fashion editorial and documentary images.
