United Skates : Newark Museum Black Film Festival 2019

June 26 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

89 min | 2018 | Documentary
Guest Speaker: Reggie Brown, Skater

Opening Reception – 5 pm
On-site pop-up roller rink open prior to screening.

Celebrate the vibrant subculture of roller skating.
When America’s last standing roller rinks are threatened with closure, a community of thousands battle in a racially charged environment to save an underground subculture–one that has remained undiscovered by the mainstream for generations yet has given rise to some of the world’s greatest musical talent.

In keeping with the theme of the evening, a one-of-a kind experience, a pop-up roller rink, will be set up outside of the Museum.
