Black Girls Skating

Production by Luvo Mnyobe & Leago Mamabolo

Skating, like other forms of sports, remains gendered, and mostly practiced by men. It is also racialized as black communities do not have the facilities to participate. We look at three black women who go against the grain and have created a community of black girls in skating culture. For them skating gives a feeling of freedom, inclusivity and joy. They founded SMUDGE, a group of black women who teach one another how to skate.
