Skating on the apartheid wall
Kenny Reed (aka “The Traveler”) is an American professional street skater who traveled to Palestine in October 2013 to help build the skate ramp in the town of Qalqilya. He travels to far-off corners of the globe to share his love of skating and teaching children how to experience the freedom it inspires. Kenny spent over two weeks in Qalqilya. After the ramp was finished, Kenny, with his Palestinian friends, went to the apartheid wall surrounding Qalqilya to embark on what may be the first documented wall ride by a skater in Palestine.
