The Lady Aggies are one of the last all-black women’s college swimming teams in the country, and in 2013 the team was in danger of being cut due to funding. After public outcry and petitioning, the decision was reversed and the team swims on.

  1. It’s funny you put this up. I was just out in NC a few months ago. I have relatives that went to North Carolina A&T. There are some beautiful black women out there. A lot more down to earth than the sistas out here in Cali. Southern women just have a different mentality. I really like their vibe down there. I may have to move.lol

    1. Yeah from what I gather people’s mentality differ in different regions of the country. For example, Most people (I’m mostly talking about Black people here) I know who move from the northeast to the south hate the mentality of a lot of southern blacks ( a lot of the slave mentality going on, but that’s everywhere though, lol). Not all of us act the same though, but it’s too many slave-minded blacks. In spite of that and not to be bragadocious, I agree with you that us Southern gals are more down to earth. lol! I’ve heard quite a few dudes from other regions say the same thing.

    1. I do hope that things get brighter for the Black Woman/Girl collective. I’m tired of White Women and their Black Womanhood appropriation. They are so basic.
