Black Jesus Didn’t Swim

2/11/16

So, I’m watching this episode of black-ish and the title is “Sink or Swim.” Basically, Dre’s white neighbors have been hosting pool parties all summer and haven’t invited them. It plays on the assumption of Black folk do not know how to swim. These two poems offer different perspectives surrounding the theme of water: historical and modern day.
