Ludacris teams with Olympians to teach kids to swim


It’s an open secret in the black community – blacks can’t swim. And the generalization doesn’t end there.

The stereotyping as to why seems less important than the life threatening data: 70 percent of black children don’t know how to float, tread water or even splash in the shallow end of the pool.

Atlanta rapper and avid swimmer Ludacris is changing that statistic by shining a light on the problem. And he’s using the resources of his namesake foundation to work towards a solution.
