It’s summer: how do teenagers pass the time? We ask Bob Wall of Recreation and Parks how the city’s rec centers work to engage teens. Then, we visit the ‘Shake and Bake Family Fun Center.’ Event Planner Onek Eldridge talks about what the center has provided for the community over the past three decades, and we ask patrons what keeps them coming back.

Plus, we preview the film ‘United Skates.’ It looks at the popularity of roller skating in African American communities and the fight to preserve it.

For information on the United Skates screening at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum, visit this link. Skaters from Shake and Bake will perform afterwards, and there will be a panel discussion.
