Paralympian, Jamal Hill, recently discussed Dr. Kevin Dawson’s book, Undercurrents of Power Aquatic Culture in the African Diaspora, on Instagram. The professional Black swimmer’s Instagram Live discussion, “BLM Shifting Paradigms” focused on aquatic culture, the African diaspora, and the Swim Up Hill initiative to combat negative propaganda surrounding false ideas that Black and Brown people do not swim.
Hill’s initiative, Swim Up Hill, aims to reduce global drowning rates by teaching one million people to swim. Learn more at swimuphill.com or follow Jamal Hill on Instagram @swimuphill.
