STUDENT PROFILE

Cathleen Dean's new project explores desegregation of Florida's beaches
From seaweed to lost beach balls, sun-seekers bump into all sorts of surprises swimming along Florida’s iconic beaches. For black swimmers however, there’s a complex history floating off Florida’s blue waters—one of segregation and violence, but also one of protest and resistance. That’s what Cathleen Dean (MFA '20) explores in her new documentary, “Wade in The Water: Drowning in Racism.” Diving deep into Black Florida’s fight for the right to swim, the new film brings to life the 1960s Civil Rights protests that desegregated the state’s beaches and swimming pools. Now the film has just picked up the $5000 runner-up prize of the Wolfson Cinemaslam Award for Best Film Featuring Archival Material, which recognizes filmmakers’ innovative use of images from the past.
