The Black Effect: Identifying Black Ownership
Also, within this installment we'd like to spotlight Black ownership and tip our hats to both Black and Brown leaders, movers and shakers, and trailblazers within sports and fashion, as well as within the business community. The need and demand to have more Black and Brown people in positions that can open doors for a more culturally diverse playground within executive spaces and arenas is ideal in today's world, and is long overdue. With that said, we'd like to give a commendable shout out to the CEO's of Sneakertopia and Premier Skateboard Association:
"Skateboarding defines Street Culture and the Sneaker movement, and we are proud to showcase PSA's select athletes in a first of its kind installation honoring these Men and Women Athletes. "--Steve Harris CEO of Sneaketopia.
"PSA is honored to be able to recognize some of its key Skate Athletes in Sneakertopia's Skate installation. We need to continue to raise the bar of visibility for these incredible athletes. "--Sheldon Lewis CEO of Premier Skateboard Association.
Premier Skateboard Association (PSA): Founded in 2020, is the leading "Athlete First" league of Professional Street Skateboarding competitions for both Women and Men.
