Documentary film 'White Wash' narrated by Ben Harper opens in New York 9/22

New film explores history of black surfing

Opening tomorrow in New York, the documentary film White Wash explores the history of black surfing in America, painting a contrast to the global sport that is dominated by white males.

The film canvasses the timeline of surfing as witnessed by Captain Cook in Hawaii to Olympic swimmer and Hawaiian surfing legend Duke Kahanamoku's advocacy in the 1920s to its current competitive landscape with few black participants. "White Wash" positions surfing as a sport and lifestyle that reflects modern racial complexity.

Drawing on expertise from scholars, writers, pro surfers and community leaders, the film connects the African slave trade, race riots in the 1960s, segregation at America's beaches and the stereotype that blacks are not strong swimmers, let alone surfers.

"White Wash tackles the absurd notion that African Americans have some genetic aversion to water sports and reveals something far more interesting about the effects of social engineering in America," said surfer and X Games TV personality Sal Masekela. more»
