Anti-Monolith Heros an article by Thulani Ngazimbi

A few months ago I was asked by the great folks at Undo Magazine to write about Black Skaters. I didn't and still don't feel as though I have the credibility to climb that proverbially large mountain; but what I did do was document 3 black men who affected me greatly enough to document my journey in becoming a professional longboard/skateboard builder. My father, who gave me my first board at 4, my reason for awakening my senses to action sports; Sal Masekela the resonant voice in cementing the fact that anyone can do anything even, including a black man being the voice of action sports on a global stage; Theotis Beasley the new generation of pro-skateboarders who do this, and prove how infectious being true to you can be!
