Friends Select School.

Panel discussion to follow.

Bessler of the Fairmount Park Commission, Scott Kip of the Skateboard

In the summer of 2005, three Philadelphia teenagers, concerned over the
skating ban in world-famous LOVE Park, explored the history, controversy,
and public reaction surrounding the ban through digital video. The video
was produced under the guidance of the Learning Lab at WHYY as part of the
Friends Select Summer Academic Program.
In addition to man on the street interviews, the students spoke to LOVE
Park creator, Ed Bacon; former city managing director, Phil Goldsmith; and
representatives from the Skateboard Advocacy Network, Educated to Skate,
and the Ed Bacon Foundation.
Aprox. 33 minutes. Produced by 14-year-olds Emmett Drueding, Paul Sanders,
and Axel Tuveson.
