Black Jockeys were our 1st Pro sports stars . During the dark time of slavery these amazing american sports pioneer heroes were not only dominant in our 1st national pastime , they established the Sport Of Kings & smashed the color barrier over 250 years prior to the iconic legendary Jackie Robinson - Yet a very small amount of sports fans & American citizens are even aware of this. It's been my dream & mission since the age of twelve 29 years ago to share these incredible stories & enlighten people about this amazing part of u.s history and at the same time honor these incredible american pioneers by insuring that their accomplishments & Legacies take their proper place in the records of American history. So Let your voice be heard & your name be part of American history - sign this National petition to have the President officially recognize & Honor these 1st U.S pro sports stars with a Champions celebration ceremony at the White House. Be part of the rewriting of American History. For more information visit http://blackjockeys.org
We the undersigned, are proposing a ceremony to be held and publicized at the White House in commemoration of America's first true sports stars - the Black Jockeys. They are one of our country's most astounding, priceless & yet mostly unknown piece of American history. We want to let the nation know about these great sports stars and are spreading the word in numbers. There is no better way to pay respect to the historical Black Jockeys, however, than to hold a ceremony in celebration of their success at the White House. Please consider our request and thank you for taking the time to read this petition and take consideration of our great nation's sports history.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
