Speakers

Selema Masekela, Moderator
Co-founder @Stoked Mentoring, an organization dedicated to mentoring at risk youth through action sports
Selema “Sal” Masekela is a beloved commentator, journalist, host, Emmy nominated producer and action sports enthusiast. Outside of his front-of-camera work, Sal thrives as a film/tv producer and musician, recording under the alias 'Alekesam'. The son of South African jazz legend/activist Hugh Masekela, Selema‘s roots are as South African as they are New York City as they are San Diego. Selema’s upbringing is very textured; it is one which led him to often being in places where he was ‘The Only', whether that was as an 8 year old sitting in on late night jazz sessions with Miles Davis, becoming the face of ESPN's X Games and bringing action sports to pop culture, or creating films and television that strike a chord with our human dilemma; who are we, what drives us and gives us joy. It is this mission that has Selema telling stories of others like him - highlighting people and places through lenses that break molds and redefine culture.
