A Ride With A Higher Purpose

Celebrate fitness, celebrate history, celebrate the dopest culture on the planet!

The team at Princeville Homecoming are about intentionality. We so appreciate your interest in our event. We know you could spend your time and money at any organized ride this year. Allow us to share with you our intentions on the project in the hopes that you will join with us in creating an amazing event.

The Black Farm Tour event is vertically integrated. Deliberately seeking to support Black businesses every step of the way; from rest facilities to Bed and Breakfasts. Our partners are all aligned in the mission to develop the human capital of our young people in support of creating a self-determined powerful community for the future.


This is one of the reasons why we picked the name Princeville Homecoming.

Because the history of the town of Princeville, North Carolina as the first ever incorporated African-American town by newly freed enslaved people represents our creativity, talent, and courage.

As you ride through the town and view the beautiful Black owned farms, how wonderful it could be if you would do more than just concentrate on finishing the ride at a certain speed. If you'd really use this time to think about your intentionality around uplifting the diaspora.

Stop and linger for a moment at the farm stops which include everything from first

generation newly-minted Farms to fifth generation Farms that are still breaking

new ground. Have conversations with the community and feel the love and the vibe of family.

Princeville Homecoming Jersey

Sankofa!

The Princeville Homecoming jersey proudly displays the colors of yellow and purple. Yellow to represent the golden fields for harvest in eastern North Carolina and purple to represent the reverence held for the founders of Princeville, NC. The first settlement of formerly enslaved people of ingenuity and resilience. On the sides and shoulders are the West African Adinkra symbol - Sankofa.

 

Sankofa is an African word from the Akan tribe in Ghana. The literal translation of the word and the symbol is “it is not taboo to fetch what is at risk of being left behind.”
