Outdoor Afro Making Waves
Research has consistently shown Black youth ages 5 to 19 drown in swimming pools at a rate more than five times that of white children. This public health disparity is our legacy of decades of segregation and exclusion from public pools and beaches.
Learning to swim is a life saving and nature embracing skill and Outdoor Afro is here to make sure every child and caregiver in our sphere of influence learns how.
