We benefit from a Black dance.
“You should try Lindy Hop, it’s super fun!”
“You’ll join an amazing community!”
“It’ll change your life!”
We hold dances for entertainment. We teach classes for our profit. We run events that perpetuate the carefree atmosphere that we’ve told ourselves is part of Lindy Hop.
The rewards that we enjoy from Lindy Hop are endless.
And just look at what’s going on around us.
Things have got to change–in the world and also right here in our community. We are all responsible for making change happen and when you stop to think about it, maybe Lindy Hoppers should be taking even more responsibility than the “average” person because we’ve benefited SO MUCH for years. We need to step up.
