Major Taylor Book Discussion at Malcolm X Library Tomorrow

A new book on 1899 world champion track racer Major Taylor will be discussed by it's author tomorrow (6/22) evening at the fabulous Malcolm X Library in South East San Diego.

The new book by Jim Fitzpatrick is titled "Major Taylor in Australia" which is where the Major relocated his career to, due to the intense bigotry and threats he faced by white racists in America.

This event is sponsored by the Major Taylor Cycling Club of San Diego and the Malcolm X Library (5148 Market St., San Diego). Be sure not to miss this. And as one of my favorite bumper stickers ever says, "Read A Fucking Book."...So why not this one? Support a library while you're at it.

  1. Sounds like a very interesting book about an athlete who overcame many hardships and obstacles. I agree that it's very important to support our local libraries...
