Too Black, Too Fast

ww2.tnstate.edu

Horse racing is big business, but it's not a sport known for its racial diversity. However, if you look back before the 20th century, black jockeys dominated the sport. A new multimedia project called, "Too Black Too Fast," documents the contributions of African-Americans to horse racing. Host Frank Stasio discusses this forgotten history with project creator Michael McBride, an artist and instructor of art at Tennessee State University.
