Tucson's Everyday People: Cutting Through the Stigma

Posted By on Tue, Nov 23, 2010 at 11:38 AM

Produced by Joshua Morgan

Rollerblading is oftentimes stigmatized in the action sports community, and because of its lack of media exposure, the general public doesn't understand what it is to the extent of what they know skateboarding, bmx, and other action sports to be. In this video produced by UA journalism student Joshua Morgan, four local rollerbladers attempt to illustrate what aggressive rollerblading is; a sport, an avenue of self-expression, and a lifestyle.
