Latosha Stone is in the business of selling skateboards. As an avid skateboarder and artist, she created the company Proper Gnar in order to sell skateboards and boarding gear that reflected visual sensibilities appealing to Black women. Applying a variety of grit and daring associated with skateboarding maneuvers, Stone appears to bring entrepreneurial strength and agility to the business she has operated since 2013.
Being included in Beyonce’ Knowles’ recently published Black Parade Directory of Black Owned Businesses certainly supports Stone’s continued success.
