Louisiana Buffalo Soldiers & Troopers Motorcycle Club - Shreveport Chapter
Signed in as:
Kenneth "Dream Maker" Thomas founded the Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club of Chicago in October of 1993. His desire was to establish a modern and progressive motorcycle club whose focus was to promote a positive image among African Americans that would be respected in the community and across the country.
The name Buffalo Soldiers was initially selected to pay homage to and ensure the legacy of African American military contributions in the post Civil War era. Under the leadership of Kenneth Thomas, the new club was chartered as the Buffalo Troopers Motorcycle Club of Chicago.
Membership in the club grew to a total of ninety-two (92) during that first year, making it the largest African American motorcycle club in Chicago, IL. The clubhouse displayed many items dedicated to the history and memory of the Buffalo Soldiers, such as pictures, books, statues, and an authentic buffalo head donated by member Ernie Daurham.
The National Association of Buffalo Soldiers and Troopers Motorcycle Club (NABSTMC) was formed in 1999 with the Chicago Chapter being recognized as the mother chapter of the organization with Kenneth "Dream Maker" Thomas as its first National President. The club has grown to over 120 chapters nationwide, including Hawaii, as well as internationally in Germany and South Korea. We have the common mission to educate on the rich history of the 9th and 10th Calvary of the Buffalo Soldiers who served in the U.S. Army from 1866 - 1944. Each chapter proudly serves in their respective communities to display goodwill as we ride our motorcycles, which we refer to as our "iron horses".
The NABSTMC is a private not for profit organization that provides donations to local and national tax-exempt charities whose mission is harmonious with the NABSTMC. We do not discriminate based on race, gender, political or religious affiliation, neither do we claim any territory.
