10:33 pm
ah, i an semi ok. there are some sports which were typically known as sports in a white atmosphere, white communities that have been broken for by people of color. i've been transformed forever, golf, tennis, ice skating. but when we're talking about snow sports, a mounting sports, not so much by the awesome people to day i want you to meet. we're aiming to change that. let's meet someone growing up into the sort of scheme. the thing that brought me to skin was this feeling of freedom. never before
10:34 pm
had i ever felt something that made me feel so free as i did on the mountain. i could go explore certain areas. i could go jump off a cliff or in the park. i could express myself the way i wanted to, and i felt never more free than when i was on my pair of skis. i am the 1st person of color to be sponsored by skews art and what snowboarding means to me is having fun going out there and doing my thing and doing what i love. when asked, what is snowboarding? mean to me, snowboarding is sort of a crazy addiction to the snowy outdoors. i feel like snowboarding for the black community has a really great chance of succeeding and becoming not just a minority in the sport, but really being able to pay the way for the future. so i was promised that
10:35 pm
let me get hello, we're no night. emily lamont, they really get to see, you know, please introduce yourself to stream audience. tell them who you are, what you do. hi everyone. my name is dana, i am one of the co founders of law and not know as a travel community all about bringing it to the mountain. we encouraged black nathan minorities, to ski and snowboard, and some of them the best time. and we create trip and time, and it's been made in the u. k. and of in and around london. all right, lovely to have you. hello, emily, introduce yourself. try international view as hi. my name is emily via i am a l. masters candidate at the school of environment where i focus on climate policy . and i spend time working as a professional snowboarder and just had are some come out the approach. fantastic. lovely to have you. them all introduce yourself to have us who may not know who you
10:36 pm
are and what you day. i am the mind joseph white. i am an artist and designer and i live in park city, utah, where i snowboard quite often, and hike and bike in just enjoy the outdoors. i would love to have your snowboarding, your skiing stories, people of color around the world. i know you do it. i know you do it. here is our comment section join in our comments section. got questions for i guess you're very welcome to be part of the day. so looking forward to having you, we know to i'm thinking about your 1st time your 1st time on snow. actually it wasn't snow, but the 1st time you attempted to ski what was that like? what made you want to do it? so i started in my twenties and i decided in university to try lesson on drive in london and it's not played, but it was amazing. it was fun and i enjoyed it. and at that point i wasn't able to
10:37 pm
go in and teach it. but i'm, you know, feed is late, so i decided i'm going to go to china. and the maids in time i had on the slate, was kept me going back every year and said to me it's, you know, it's part of all in down the fun of trying something new going down. if it's and say it's, it's you know what, you know, i met him, you can keep coming back. not really the mom that 1st time that you ever i will put on a snowboard or you put on skis. you remember back then? what was it night? yeah, just like when i didn't start until i was in my twenties, it's something that i wanted to do as a child and i see some of my friends in school come back on mondays after a weekend of snowing up skiing and they'd have their ski tags hanging from their jackets and i want to try that and wasn't till i was in my twenties when i did some friends brought me to the mountain and i was just hooked immediately. any we have
10:38 pm
some pictures of you. it's a beautiful slide show. when did you know that you would get that? nope, just okay. whit or a good? well, you know, i consider myself a, a lifelong student. so i'm always learning and there's always more skills to pick up, especially especially as you head into the back country. but yeah, i have to sort of back what both one, no, not in the mont said. what drew me in was just like the curiosity, the play. just getting to, you know, try hard things and fall and get back up in this sort of somewhat, in some circumstances controlled manner. so it's just, yeah, it's just a really incredible sport. go ahead. i'm ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, no, i think what resonates with all of us is just the freedom and enjoyment of being out there in the mountains. and it's really kind of like no other experience in life, no matter what's going on in your life at that time, you can escape,
10:39 pm
you can find joy, you can find stress release and just have a, have a blast, why you're doing it. so i think it's one of these things that we feel we feel blessed improve was to do. i'm just looking here. we know you're instagram account for mountain while you look extraordinary. look at that picture. you look in your elbow and i remember the 1st time that my school announced that they were going to do a skiing chip. this was in south london, and i had to do a whole project for my nigerian parents who had never seen snow. and i remember when i was 13 years old, i drew skis and these are skis and then this is snow. and this is what you do on skis on snow. i oversee it was persuasive because they coughed up the money to allow me to go skiing and i've been skiing ever since. i was 13 years old, but there is a cultural gap there. now,
10:40 pm
i'm not. everyone's got nigerian parents that need to be convinced with an a river project, but that is a cultural gap there between what is seen to be a sport that is not black people and people of color and a sport that's the you appear. so for white people were now know how did your family handle you been us? yeah. we have similar backgrounds. where am i gonna? yeah. and so i know all about it. you know. yeah. and so i know it all about how, you know, in terms of like having to convince them that it was normal to prepare yourself down about it, you know, sometimes 50 miles per hour. and, but i can actually tell them i was very, i just did it. and i came back, i told them only mom i've been and now she even what's the company and so, but i definitely recognize that there's a lot of stereotypes in a lot of even in the back community about what it's like to be in the 1st now i
10:41 pm
think people, you know, i like skiing and they're like really call what isn't it like we don't do that with . and so i think there's a lot of stereotypes within the community. african parents are not the game. and people have been being dangerous for, you know, too expensive. it's only for white people or, you know, it's not the case. 3 people sit here. and so i would say, i definitely understand what needs to break down the barriers. oh my, my director, just tell me he snows both, we've got a little black and brown club going on right here. that was he kind of going on here. i'm just looking at my laptop, emily and these figures really say pretty much everything about the u. s. people of color who sky, so 87.5 percent a white, then 6 percent, asian, 5 percent latino, latino, one plus 1.5 percent black,
10:42 pm
one with another 7 percent indigenous. you will see that this doesn't add up to 100 because some people are more than one category. ok. but the point is that here, all the majority of people who ski and then not people of color. emily, how is how does that impact you when you are on the stripes? yeah, i would say it empowers me to be present and take up space. you know, it's no accident. that skiing and snow spurts are predominantly white. just due to the pattern of settlement that occurred in the us with red lining and forced migration and exclusion from natural areas and parks. and so it really is about going and reclaiming space. and i'm sure lamont, you probably agree. 100 percent 100 percent. i look at those figures
10:43 pm
as black, where 14 percent of the population, the united states. and when i have gone to mountain over the year they, i kind of quite frankly, accepted the fact that it was white majority sport. and then i was amongst the super minority in that space. but after a while they started question that and instead of just accepting it, figure, what can i, what do i have to say about it? what can i do about it? and that's why i created the skiing and color collection and i'm pleased with the reaction. there's been a lot of people i didn't realize were having this conversation prior to me painting the pieces that i have. and i'm super happy that i can be just one voice in this narrative, like emily said to reclaim spaces, to re normalize and reconditioned what,
10:44 pm
where we think we belong or where others feel like we belong. just to change that narrative and flip the status quo. and what i'm going to show some of your pictures off here and i'll show some more in a moment. so the, the picture just to the side of me here. this is you, reclaiming places, faces so that it's ok for you to ski if you're black or snowboard, if you're black. a beautiful one piece here, a 5th doing a one piece and then this picture here of the gen skiing. it looks like a photograph. it's so beautiful, so this is some of your work where you're showing off images that people don't normally get to see when the on the slopes are not so much. what difference does that make ammonia you think? well, like it's often said, if you see it, you can be, i'm a strong believer in representation. my role is to exercise representation through my artwork. it's going to take a lot of voices to change the narrative. i've been told by many people as they've
10:45 pm
discovered me in this space, it's a long road, and i me the mediately let them know that that's fine. black abroad people are used to long roads. i'm not going anywhere right now. i'm in a place where i'm promoting the narrative of of changing what is normal and outdoor spaces, mountain spaces in nature and whatnot. and one day i hope to be just presenting images that are maintaining diverse city that's lacking. so quite frankly, if we can invite black brown people into nature more often, nature will take care of us and will in turn take care of nature. i'm just going to show you, go, go ahead, emily. you can, i have said some of the great. yeah. you know, as well, mine is saying this is about developing a connection with your inner self as well as the natural world. you know, it is really important. black and brown. people make up
10:46 pm
a significant part of the population globally. and you know, we're in the midst of a climate crisis. we need to start building connection and reclaiming this space because this is important to our survival. yeah. emily, we were in a film that come out now perfect for ski season, which is bringing together a little people from different backgrounds and diversity is a different diversity. say some people may have challenges in terms of physical challenges and just like a whole spectrum of people that you don't always see. maybe you don't notice on the slope. the film coffee approach have a little kit for the can see what's going on in it. i think i think i just need like a little bit more belief in myself and then i would have it. and i feel like that's
10:47 pm
one of those moments like i can do the thing i can try to think. but if i don't actually believe that i'm a landed, i feel like the nar can tell a emily that she makes, i can see a smile is really frightened. it costs a lot to hit the slopes. so maybe it's not just about, well, it's a cultural thing. maybe just because it's really expensive. right, right. there are many, many socio economic barriers to the space snowboarding snow, sports are incredibly expensive. and so, you know, when we're thinking about how to increase participation i, there needs to be
10:48 pm
a lot of attention paid to this in terms of creating opportunities to, you know, bring year to non profits, just continuing to grow that space. there's so many non profits working in this space right now with disadvantaged youth people of color, so many different affinity groups and identities. and yeah, i mean, that is a much bigger problem than, than just snow sports, right? it's a microcosm of all of the issues that we're experiencing in the, in the us. and i think globally, yeah, i definitely agree the emilita, i think, even, you know, outside of black in new jersey, it's quite expensive. you know, go on a ski trip. and if anyone can sort of, you know, help in terms of making sure the entry point is a little bit lower where it's level where it's the gave that you have to buy. you can definitely get more people into ski and it's very bored. and if you don't come
10:49 pm
from sort of in a certain background, but the black or not, it's very difficult to navigate. you know, a ski trip, babbled and trip. i'm just got sure. and o'con, you know more, you go fast and bring in some tweet like to go at god. sure, sure. i just want to say we can build those bridges. there are barriers, right? there can be financial barriers, geographic barriers, cultural barriers, my family growing up, we could have afforded a ski trip or 2. but it wasn't culturally anything we ever had a conversation about my parents growing up in depression era, in baltimore, in brooklyn. it's just not a conversation. let's go to the slopes and ski wasn't something that was normal in my household at all, but it was somebody who i was that i was attracted to from a far but you know, i am part of the for in some part of the sky, utah inclusion committee and we're starting to build some of these bridges right.
10:50 pm
there are many other nonprofits that are bringing kids, which is very important families to the slopes. right. so there are opportunities, fund raisers. i go on with these nonprofits that can help build these bridges. and we can bring families and kids to the slopes, 4 or 5 times in a season, that plants, the seeds. right to get people hooked. right? those who will be hooked, get them hooked. and in little by little, we start to build the diversity inclusion. gonna show you guess a couple of tweets sort of supporting what you've been saying about the, the cost of skiing and you come up with a couple of solutions around that cost of ski. mario's watching, she says the cost of tickets, policies, equipment, as kids grow, you need to replace their skis and boots. there's also risk of injury. having good insurance is practically a prerequisite. oh, good thought then mario, i've so and then says, yes, it is not cheap, but a suit power back to the teeth. a physical fitness,
10:51 pm
socializing and mental well being. i've not yet found anything better. and if you like to have tough size like fly is that don't wiggle one day on the soaps. that's all it really is like i and so i is one day on this. if i haven't persuaded you yet, perhaps this might, this is a little a trailer for mountain wall. it's a travel company that is known as set up to take people of color from the u. k. skag. let's take a look. oh, when i renew with my yeah, no, no vacancy or something up to place both, you know,
10:52 pm
more rural by bring to the music a book. mm hm. right, we're now the, how was it? how was it going? i know comedies not helping. none of us have forgotten covered, and that is a major issue in terms of getting on the slopes and, and doing the things that we love to do outdoor. so that aside the idea, the concept from mount dora. how's that going? so we launched shortly just before you know, the clever pandemic hit that we were very lucky to have our fast and chip just before we all went into look down and, and because it hasn't been great and me, i work at the doctor and they have been in much and you know, the sick a bit, but in terms of, you know, travel and knowing what you can plan for and what car is quite difficult moments. and even recently, as you can think of some of the, you know, travel kinds of total changed. and in terms of what we strive, boys, we look for companies who are fixable and with in a cancellation and you know,
10:53 pm
kind of a big trip and a lot of people have been accommodated. and but at the same time as much as we want to stay safe and much as we went to make sure that we're having a great time and it is difficult to navigate digits. and but we did make sure that if any cancellation through your i guess will be funded as much as he had done. i know i've got a couple of questions for you and this is going to be speed round cuz i got so many questions. i want to share the move. ok. all right to natasha says, what was it like on your 1st ski trip when no, no. seeing that it was a completely new sport for you fairly quickly, we're going to go ahead. so it was quite, quite gary and, but i enjoyed every moment of the ends with bowling. i enjoyed people and you know, the company that i met on the slates and some of them are my friends today. all right. tattle tale says, we need more information getting to our communities, breaking the stereotypes, the more you handle that one. i think it starts with the mountains themselves.
10:54 pm
people who own and operate the mountain spaces are kind of, i feel like at the top of the pyramid. and once these mountain owners and operators start to do more with their marketing, do more with their hiring, do more with their on mountain and off mountain presence of black and brown people . right, that's going to set the tone for brands for the main street of mountain cities and outdoor community to say, hey, if the owners and operators of these spaces are intentionally inclusive, then we can follow suit, i think, until they make long lasting moves in perpetuity. we're still going to treat inclusion as a trend, right, we're still going to treat diversity at the trend. and you know, skin color is not a trend. emily and where we, where we see it lacking shot, we need to, we need to make moves. i make,
10:55 pm
i had are nodding. yeah. you are spot on them on and i think this extends to the outdoor industry as a whole. you know, i have to be honest. my career really took off after the summer matter and after george floyd. and so that, that is, that's really hard to hold. that's, you know, and it shouldn't be the case and it should not be a trend. absolutely not a man. what to bring to more scares into our conversation. because actually i think they take us to where do we go next? i know you all 3 of you do love being on the slopes. it is not your job to bring diversity to the slopes. that is not your job. your job is to just enjoy yourself out there and maybe you can get people to do it too. good to do she to then g ski areas. hi, i'm benjamin alexander, and i'm about to become to make his 1st of alpine ski racer to represent the country at the next island games in beijing 2022. we need to get more people of
10:56 pm
color into the outdoors, into skiing, into winter sports. and to do that, we need more people of color to be successful, role models in the sport to prove that the sport is for everyone that everyone can have fun and enjoy the outdoors. no matter where you're from. we need the tiger woods of skiing, i believe. the reason why if we don't see more people falling in my footsteps is the barrier to entry. so i feel like as a whole the ski community needs to come together and put together, learn to ski programs and make it more accessible for, you know, people of lower income levels to be able to participate in this amazing sport. i can't wait to see the tiger woods. 0, one of the williams sisters of snowboarding or skiing. it's it's, it's bound to happen. no more thoughts. and i said, oh yeah, i just say yeah, yeah. power. yeah. yeah. you know. yeah, yeah,
10:57 pm
yeah. the other out. yeah, there outline you i. yes, narrative needs to change. there are a lot of hysteria. uh black and brown snow borders and gears were out here. all right, thank you. thank you for setting up our future guest. right? yeah. dan detto has gone to the own to the stream, so we make it so that everybody knows who these names are. they can watch and follow them, support them. thank you so much. guess it's been such a pleasure. let me just show you on my laptop, this is where notice company, mountain wall. you can follow it on instagram. emily is say, here kohls in the wild, great handle and look, got love all just doing his thing. this is really nice and see this as well. all right, so everybody, thanks very, very much for your questions on youtube. your comments were no net, emily long. it's been a pleasure talking to you, bringing diverse to the mountain slopes around the well, thanks for watching. i'll see you next time take
