We get a lot of questions about our project - mostly, what’s the point? We’re figuring it out as we go - our year is about traveling, listening, taking photos, talking to folks, and looking for America. Our country is vast and fractured and complicated - but there are things that connect us. Our project, Tendency to Wander, is about finding those connections and exploring those splinters.
I don’t know if one of those connectors would be Roller Derby - but passion and camaraderie sure are. I dare anyone to check out a game of roller derby and NOT be inspired by the amazingly strong women who fly around the track.
We were lucky enough to take in a match this weekend and the Hit It & Quidditch Roller Derby Tournament, hosted by the Nashville Rollergirls, was a blast.
