Meet ground-breaking African-American motor racers in this panel and discussion program, led by driver, owner and entrepreneur Leonard Miller. Program includes a preview of a soon-to-be released documentary about Miller, his Black American Racers Association, and his efforts to break the color barrier in motor sports.  A restored Formula “Super Vee” raced by Miller’s team is also on view, courtesy of the Volkswagen Group of America.
