Wade in the Water: Drowning in Racism – Director, Cathleen Dean

From seaweed to lost beach balls, sun-seekers bump into all sorts of surprises swimming along Florida’s iconic beaches. For Black swimmers however, there’s a complex history floating off Florida’s blue waters – one of segregation and violence, but also one of protest and resistance. 

“Wade in The Water: Drowning in Racism” dives deep into Black Florida’s fight for the right to swim, the film brings to life the 1960s Civil Rights protests that desegregated the state’s beaches and swimming pools.

A livestream is also taking place so those who do not live in South Florida can watch the film.

The film is making a splash in both the Miami Film Festival as well as the Roxbury Film Festival in the Boston area.
