Hi Jayson and Shaun. I am a physical therapist that loves to swim. I wrote an article about swimming that spoke of amputees in swimming. I am getting ready to submit the article but I need pictures of amputees and nonamputees swimming as well as performing core stabilization exercises that I have listed in the article. I would really love to showcase african american swimmers. Do you know of anyone that might be interested and available to meet sometime next week to have their picture taken either swimming or performing certain exercises? My email address is email@example.com Thanks :)
I heard about you via the National Black Heritage Chamionship Swim Meet web site. I will be attending the event this weekend, for sure Sat, maybe Sun, hopefully both days. Every time I attend I get goose bumps and sometimes my eye's fell with tears. During the 50s and 60s this was without a doubt none exsistant. Its wounderfull to see so many Black children competing, but the most important point of all is the family support and they come from all over the U.S. What a wounderfull site to see. My heart fills with pride and is overjoyed that swimming is begining to take hold among Black American's who once, long, long ago, were considered among the best swimmers in the world.

Greetings! We discovered y'all through Rue Mapp, founder of Outdoor Afro;) We are excited to be jointly working on a project to inspire African Americans to get outside and enjoy more water recreational activities... i.e. swimming, paddling etc. We would love to work with y'all on this project as well! Please let me know the best way to contact you via email.
Hey Jayson. I read about this Site because I was looking up Swimmers like Michael Phelps and Cullen Jones, who both of those guys are my inspiration, i looked up on Youtube about Black Swimmers. I looked up the videos about the Swim meets and I was intrigued. I wanted to join a College where I can join a swim team. My community College doesn't have a Swim Team.
I am involved with Wahooo Swim Monitor Systems and interested in drowning prevention. I saw an article about Bruce Wigo and the award he received at the NDPA last week. Thought Wahooo could contribute to your mission! Check us out at wahooosms.com or like us on Facebook for updates, installations & promotions - wahooosms.com/facebook. Thanks for all you do.
Hi, Jayson. Here is a link: http://news92fm.com/?p=159472 Please let me know if I need to edit the credit information. Thanks so much for your help!
Additionally, I would love to talk with someone from your group about your mission, events, etc... I think it could be a great profile. Let me know if you are interested and who I might be able to speak with in regard to this. Make it a great day!
