Whats good y’all! This week I want to dedicate the blog to highlighting other minority aquatic professionals and organizations in the space. My goal is for this blog is to become a community resource for black and brown swimmers. As well as anyone who wants to support black and brown aquatic professionals. That being said, this is just the start. The list is meant to be simple and to the point but continuously developing.
