Explore the enthralling saga within 'Hidden Legacy Volume 1,' an exceptional art and research chronicle illuminating an era where African Americans reigned in America's maiden national sport—thoroughbred horse racing. This volume meticulously unveils the gripping narrative of pre- and post-Civil War African American jockeys, erstwhile luminaries of racing. Once revered stars in races pivotal to the esteemed Triple Crown, notably the Kentucky Derby, their dominance prevailed, triumphing in 6 of 10 derbies from 1890 to 1899, resonating across the sport's apex.

Jimmie L. Westley Jr, harnesses modern graphics and AI to resurrect this obscured sporting epoch. Across 48 pages, Westley's breathtaking portrayals of these riders stand as visual testaments to their extraordinary legacy. Complemented by QR code links, readers can delve deeper into this history, accessing articles and videos for comprehensive insights into these exceptional athletes.
