In keeping with the tradition of Black people finding “a way out of no way,” three Black women have figured out a safer way to roller skate amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

As seasons change and temperatures drop, heating lamps will be installed to help make planned tailgating skate events all the more cozy.
