In 1974, Ben Finley and his friend Art Clay founded the National Brotherhood of Skiers, the largest group of African American skiers in the country. The NBS aims to get more skiers of color out in the mountains, and to send black skiers to the Olympics and Paralympics. On today’s episode, Ben Finley (who is now 81 and still skiing regularly) and his co founder Art Clay tell Shelby about the NBS’s legendary Black Summit events, the love stories that bloom from yearly gatherings, and how you can help the pair’s induction into the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame.
