DIVWhen Sonny Barger formed the Oakland Hell's Angels in 1957, a few miles up East 14th Street in East Oakland, a young black bike rider form Louisiana named Tobie Gene Levingston was soon to follow in Barger's footsteps. The two knew and respected each other and had ridden their Harleys together in the same East Bay neighborhood. In 1959, Tobie Gene organized the Dragons, a loosely knit, all-black men's club, one of the first of its kind. The dragon's earliest incarnation began as an all-black car club. It originally stemmed from Tobie Gene's big brother role to keep his younger brothers and friends occupied and out of trouble. The Dragons became ten strong, including members like MacArthur, Hooker, Tobie's brothers Joe Louis and Jonas, Baby Joe, Sam and Cousin Rabbit. Tobie Gene became the East Bay Dragons MC's first and only president, still reigning and riding after forty-four years.'/div

I bought this book for Ppete because who can resist a cover with a lovely lady with a huge Afro. This book discusses the movement of the Black motorcycle clubs. It has some interesting photos and it is an easy enough read. Read full review
