The Roots of Lindy Hop
As Some Like It Hot we want to spread our love for Lindy Hop and we need to help shine light on the hardships black people had to go through in the past and which they are still facing today.
Here you can learn more about African American dancers who are the reason we can enjoy these dances today.
Read about the famous Swing dance clips we love and how they were made to portray black dancers in a way that white audiences were comfortable watching them (and how producers made sure that their scenes could be easily cut, so that cinemas had the option of not showing any black people at all).
More on inequality and segregation of the early Swing era and how in the Savoy ballroom the barrier of racial segregation was broken.
