Claima x Sperry Docuseries Explores Black Communities’ Connection to Water

‘It’s everyone’s right to have a positive connection with water in this world.’

Amen. Former Nike marketer Bimma Williams’ Claima podcast joins forces with Sperry to launch a new docuseries, “Reclaim Your Water.” Predominantly not a space that makes room for Black people, Williams and others look to turn the tide of outdoor recreation. The new docuseries looks to tell stories that help do just that.

“Reclaim Your Water” seeks to “amplify the voices of entrepreneurs and creatives connected to and inspired by water,” and explore the relevance of water in Black communities through historical perspectives.

The three short films launched on Sperry’s YouTube channel on July 22. In them, three Black leaders of water-focused recreation outreach groups tell their stories.

It’s easy to digest each quick episode. If you’ve got 5 minutes, you’ve got enough to check out “Reclaim Your Water.”

Runtime: 30 seconds (trailer), 5 minutes (episodes)
