**This is the true to life story of Bessie Stringfield, a rebellious young black
women, who traveled the country on her Harley in the 1930’s & 40’s. She
followed her dreams, her restless spirit and her wanderlust to ride the circle of
death with traveling circus’s across the country. A pioneer in an era when
women, but more especially black women, were relegated to the kitchen and
servitude. This rebellious young woman could not live a life of mediocracy.
Straddling a Harley, in a man’s world, her life became One Hell of a Ride. **
