Marshall Walter “Major” Taylor (Nov 26, 1878 – June 21, 1932) was a cyclist who turned pro at 18, and soon emerged as “one of the dominant athletes of his era.” During the peak of his cycling career (also the decade that saw the highest number of recorded lynchings in the U.S.), Taylor stood strong, competed globally, broke world records and in 1903 he earned prize money totaling $35,000 (est. $923,352USD today)
