Simone Manuel is the first African American woman to win gold in the 100-meter freestyle competition during the Rio Olympics.  Her win shatters the myth that African Americans cannot swim.  There is a historical reason behind the lack of black swimmers and we'll talk about it on the next Another View.  Our guests include historian Dr. Cassandra Newby-Alexander, psychologist Dr. Angela Jones, and Leslie Paul, creator of RAPS - Really Awesome People Swimming - a program designed to teach African American children how to swim.  Join us for the next Another View on Health featuring cardiologist Dr. Keith Newby as co-host, Friday, August 26 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us live on this blog!
