The Blacks Can’t Swim film documentaries highlight the issue, enabling @BlackSwimAssoc to work with partners in addressing it.
Great screening of the documentary today at @PwC_UK HQ at Embankment.
Together let’s work together to change the narrative. https://t.co/4uVSZU0eNn pic.twitter.com/jcJt7Htd7R

Blacks Can’t Swim REWIND opens the sensitive conversation and dialogue which previous would have been very uncomfortable to have with scenes based on lived experiences combined with real interview footage.
The drama follows two separate stories – that of both a 15-year-old boy and a girl, struggling with the effects of the stigmas and stereotypes that have helped shaped the narrative and thought process as to why a disproportionate number of African, Caribbean and Asians in England do not swim.
The film documentary addresses issues of inequality within the education system, aquatic career pathways and many more. Find out how you can order a private screening here…
