The Motown Sound on Wheels

His book has reached number one on Amazon.com’s list in the Roller Skating and Rollerblading category for new releases.  His work focuses on his life, and growing up listening and skating to Motown music that started in the 1950’s and continues to present day.  There will be a book signing at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History from 5:30 PM until 9:30 PM, Wednesday, February 20 in the G.M. Auditorium Theatre.  In addition to the book signing there will be skating videos from all over the country and live skating shows performed by Richard, Centofanti, Lue, Longstreet and local Michigan skaters.
