I am sharing my journey into why I created and produced a film called 'Blacks Can't Swim'. I was unable to swim and wanted to understand why there was such a disproportionate number of black people who cannot swim. I also wanted to encourage people to learn these essential life saving skills. According to official figures by Sport England, 95% of black adults and 80% of black children do not swim. Those are horrific figures and we have a lot of drowning.
