(Washington, DC) DC Parks and Recreation will host the nation’s top young swimmers at the 18th Annual Black History Invitational Swim Meet.
The event takes place Feb. 14-15 at the William H. Rumsey Aquatic Center, located at 635 North Carolina Ave., SE.
This year's honoree is former Washington mayor Sharon Pratt.
The Black History Invitational Swim Meet was co-founded in 1987, by the District of Columbia Department of Parks and Recreation and The United Black Fund, Inc. These two organizations formed an alliance to produce the first and only swim meet in the nation held in honor of Black History Month. The swim meet was originally established to provide urban youth, nationwide exposure to organized competition, and a positive outlet for self-expression, a forum of positive role models, and an opportunity to visit the nation's capital.
