The Blackboard

Marquis Bradshaw’s debut documentary film The Blackboard examines what it means to be black in America, through the lens of skateboarding culture, which has become socially acceptable among black people only in recent years.

Pro skaters Jabari Pendleton, Karl Watson, and Ron Allen (one of the first black pro skaters and one of the first skaters to ever receive major corporate sponsorship), are telling their own story, without any filter but their own.
