The California African American Museum (CAAM) has announced its newest edition, How We Roll. A showcase dedicated to expressing the influences African Americans and Latinos have had on the cultures of Skateboarding, Surfing and Rollerskating. Take Juice Magazine Issue 67 cover boy Eric “Tuma” Britton for example. A legendary Dogtown rider from the ’80s Tuma’s style is continuing to influence skaters young and old through the lessons that he teaches and also by pure example tearing it up in any terrain possible. There are many aspects of skate culture that have yet to be documented making this exhibit a must see.
Opening reception for the show is:
Date: Wednesday, July 28, 2010
Time: 6 pm – 10 pm at CAAM.
600 State Drive, Exposition Park
Los Angeles, CA 90037
Parking at Exposition Park is $8.00 per vehicle.
The show lasts through January 2, 2011 giving you plenty of time to head over there. Take some time to pay homage to some style setters of many decades. After all where would any skater or surfer be without style. – JESS BRAAM
