SWIM STORY

PRE-ORDER
NOW

This book is a chronological documentation in pictures of MY swim story, which began with the debilitating thought “if my daughter, Lolita, ever got in trouble in the water and I couldn’t save her for lack of vital water skills and safety knowledge, I would never forgive myself.”

The Blacks Can’t Swim feature film documentaries are my revolutionary journey into swimming and the world of aquatics – giving voice to and putting a Spotlight on my Black and Asian communities’ swim stories, and engaging with the aquatic sector to tackle inequalities, educate, change narratives and, ultimately, save lives.

The music, three feature film documentaries, co-founding the Black Swimming Association and its pioneering work, hundreds of media interviews, news articles, and invitations to share my story.

If I had a pound for every time I was asked, “So how did it all begin?” I would have enough to own a yacht.

Be inspired to give voice to your swim story!

This book contains 380 pages including untold stories, unseen footage, previously unreleased podcasts, news articles, hundreds of pictures, music and video footage through QR codes.

It follows the journey that led to the creation of the films, the formation of the Black Swimming Association, the ups and downs, private messages, back stories and many more.
