Images on newsprint by Cat Roif capturing the various personalities who spend their days and nights at a Miami roller rink.
"When America’s last standing roller rinks are threatened with closure, a community of thousands battle in a racially charged environment to save an underground subculture-- one that has remained undiscovered by the mainstream for generations, yet has given rise to some of the world’s greatest musical talent."
