OUR MISSION

 

      Our colors represent a long history and we wear them with pride and respect. Our colors pay homage to African Americans of the 9th and 10th Cavalry who sacrificed their lives so that our country could be what it is today. They are a badge of courage, sacrifice and honor as are those who continue to serve.  The Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club of Delaware is an organization of professional men and women that are dedicated to the sport of motorcycle riding and saftey. We ride our motorcycles (Iron Horses) to represent the horses that were ridden by the Buffalo Soldiers during the 1800's.

 

       Our objective is to educate those that are unfamiliar with the racism, sacrfices and hardships that the Buffalo Soldiers of the 9th and 10th Calvaries had to endure. Our vision is to instill this knowledge into the minds and hearts of our youth of today, so that we can motivate them to become better citizens and leaders of tomorrow. We feel by doing this, the legacy of the Buffalo Soldiers of the past will live forever and shall not be forgotten.

 

       We are contributors in our local communities and throughout the State of Delaware by supporting charitable needs and educating others, especially our youth. Our efforts are pursued in regards to the large sacrifices that were made by not only the Buffalo Soldiers, but other African and Native Americans during the pre and post civil war periods. We believe that these are the core values needed to help install self respect and pride in today's youth.
