If you’ve been following Clyde Singleton on Instagram, then you caught his excellent and thorough series of posts honoring Black skaters for Black History Month. Apparently, there’s a lot more where that came from as revealed in Clyde’s new interview with Anthony Pappalardo for Parade. The conversation covers race in skateboarding, and reveals Clyza’s upcoming projects, which include a podcast series and book based on the topic.
So now you’ve got a successful cooking career going with The Ollie Llama (@theolliellamagram) and you’re moving back to Florida. What else do you have coming up?
I’m just psyched to be on the road. I’m more productive on the road, so I’m going to work on some podcasts and turn the Black Skateboarding History content into a book. The plan is to launch some smaller versions quarterly then come out with a big one at the end of the year. I already have content together, it’s just gathering it all up. I got the van, I got these projects, and I can just be on the road and gather footage for another video project too. It’s not going to be easy but I have a few people helping out and it should be off to a very good start.
