The North Carolina A&T Lady Aggies is a Division 1 HCU swimming team that competes in the Historically Black College And University Swim Meet with Howard University and Florida A&M and the Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association. Photographer Kevin Dorsey captured these images of the young women that undoubtedly portray the strength, beauty and diversity of these top ranked swimmers.
The Lady Aggies are one of the last all black women’s swim teams in the country and in 2013 the team was even in danger of being cut due to funding issues. After public outcry and petitioning, the decision was reversed. There are thousands of young swimmers in this country who train their entire lives to attain swimming scholarships for college. Needless to say, The Lady Aggies ensures there is still a place for them to continue swimming.
