South Africa’s tragic colonial history has resulted in extreme inequality, corruption, and record crime rates. Gender equality is written into today’s South African Constitution, but in reality, even Born Free girls and women suffer from a harshly patriarchal tradition. One NGO , however, uses skateboarding to break down barriers. If the disparity in treatment between boys and girls is extremely clear, so is skateboarding’s power to shatter prejudice and expectations. Johannesburg is Skateistan’s fourth location, and the prism through which we documented the support and strength of a movement on the rise.
