The Little Rock Convention and Visitors Bureau has announced that the 39th Annual National Bikers Roundup is coming to the State Fairgrounds this week, bringing in 40,000 motorcyclists from all over the country. It will be the first time that the National Bikers Roundup, founded by African-American motorcyclists, has been held in Arkansas.

The roundup, here Aug. 3-7, is the largest camping motorcycle camping rally in the U.S.; more than 1,000 clubs participate. The event always includes a food drive; this year's event benefits Arkansas Foodbank.
The rally's Facebook page says the event will feature performances by Nicky Parrish, Urban Mystic and Calvin Richardson on Friday, along with karaoke, kids events, domino tournaments and more. Harley-Davidson Motorcycles will showcase the bikes and biking accessories. Admission is $20 "with colors," $30 without.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
