Skating Through Hell And High Water: An Oral History Of The Big Easy Rollergirls

Jun 21, 2019

The Big Easy Rollergirls have been skating around New Orleans since 2004. Thanks to a few fiercely loyal founding members, the team survived the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to become one of the most prominent derby organizations in the country. Sally Asher was one of those founding members. In this edition of NOLA Life Stories, Sally chronicles her path to becoming a Big Easy Rollergirl, starting with her earliest athletic memories. 

This NOLA Life Stories interview was conducted by Mark Cave for The Historic New Orleans Collection and produced for WWNO by Sarah Holtz.
