On October 4th, 2008, North Charleston became the 77th Chapter of the National Association of Buffalo Soldiers and Troopers Motorcycle Club. Our mission is to give honor to the Buffalo Soldiers and to express our pride in their significant contributions made to American history. We strive to promote cultural awareness by engaging in charitable activities which benefit the communities in which we live and educating today’s youth about our African American heritage.
Our organization is open to anyone who shares our enthusiasm for riding and our goal to be a positive role model to our youth and our community.
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 in the Community. The National Association of Buffalo Soldiers and Troopers Motorcycle Club (NABSTMC) consist of professional men and women with an eagerness to “do good in the hood” through community service.
Chapters across the nation dedicate time and resources to feed the homeless, award college scholarships and ride motorcycles in events supporting causes such as the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
Locally, our North Charleston Chapter sponsors the Beyond Our Walls Meeting Place. Beyond Our Walls is a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing the involvement of parents and neighbors at community schools and organize resources to benefit parents and their school-aged children. We have consistently contributed to “Back to School” drives across the Greater Charleston area and programs such as the March of Dimes.
This is a good beginning, but we need your help to do more! Our goal is to expand our International African American Museum (IAAM), the BSMC North Charleston Program, and Veterans’ Victory House.
