Before the Civil Rights Movement, there was a Jamaican-American woman who shattered boundaries by riding her motorcycle across America. Her name was Bessie B. Stringfield. Adopted at age five by a wealthy, white Irish Catholic family, her parents gave her whatever she asked for including a motorcycle. She relied heavily on her faith in God to get her through encounters with racism, sexism and denial of essentials such as fuel for her motorcycle and hotel rooms on her road trips. Her nothing-can-stop-me attitude, outstanding riding skills along with her faith in God has made her one of the most incredible and talked about Twentieth Century female motorcycle pioneers.
