A Salute to the Buffalo Soldiers MC



Finally a MC whose sole purpose isn't selling crack. Talk about dripping with culture and class, the Buffalo Soldiers MC is it. Bob Marley referred to the Buffalo Soldiers. So did K'naan is his earlier version of Waving Flag.



"So many wars, settling scores bringing us promises leaving us war. I heard them say love is the way, love is the answer, that's what they say. But look how they treat us, make us believers. We fight their battles then they deceive us. Try to control us they couldn't hold us cause we just move forward like Buffalo Soldiers." K'naan

  1. Keep telling that history:

    Read the novel, Rescue at Pine Ridge, where Buffalo Bill Cody meets a Buffalo Soldier, the greatest fictionalized 'historical novel’ ever written. A great story of Black Military History, the first generation of Buffalo Soldiers. The website is; http://www.rescueatpineridge.com This is the greatest story of Black Military History...5 stars Amazon, and Barnes & Noble. Youtube commercials are: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iD66NUKmZPs and

    Rescue at Pine Ridge is the story of the rescue of the famed 7th Cavalry by the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers. The 7th Cavalry got their butts in a sling again after the Little Big Horn Massacre, fourteen years later, the day after the Wounded Knee Massacre. If it wasn't for the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers, there would of been a second massacre of the 7th Cavalry.

    This story is about, brutality, compassion, reprisal, bravery, heroism and gallantry.

    I know you’ll enjoy the novel. I wrote the story that embodied the Native Americans, Outlaws and African-American/Black Soldiers, from the south to the north, in the days of the Native American Wars with the approaching United States of America.

    The novel was taken from my mini-series movie of the same title, “RaPR” to keep my story alive. Hollywood has had a lot of strikes and doesn’t like telling our stories…its been “his-story” of history all along…until now. The movie so far has attached, Bill Duke directing, Hill Harper, Glynn Turman, James Whitmore Jr. and a host of other major actors in which we are in talks with…see imdb.com at; http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0925633/

    When you get a chance, also please visit our Alpha Wolf Production website at; http://www.alphawolfprods.com and see our other productions, like Stagecoach Mary, the first Black Woman to deliver mail for the United States Postal System in Montana, in the 1890's, “spread the word”.

    Peace.

  2. Thanks for the info and links. There’s a few more things I want to write about that history. Tying it in with Redemption song. Good luck with your movie company. You’re welcome up here in Canada. I’m not involved in the industry but I know it’s getting popular here.
