More than 50 years after landmark civil rights decisions opened schools and voting booths, fewer than 1% of competitive swimmers in the U.S. are black and Latino. Parting the Waters is the story of African-American championship swimmers Maritza Correia and Cullen Jones, and the young black and Latino swimmers coming up behind them as they challenge old myths, fears, and stereotypes to break down the last vestiges of segregation.
Sounds cool. BTW, what is the theory behind the lack of competitive latino swimmers? I don't imagine it's as involved as the theory behind the lack of black swimmers.
