Double Dutch

Double Dutch, a sport said to have been brought to America by Dutch settlers in New York City, has become synonymous with sisterhood, hip-hop culture, and the Black community. Laila Little, “The Queen of Double Dutch,” shows off her moves and tells us all about it in this episode of “The Shape Shift”—an original series from BeSe and Smartwater that explores the intersection of sports, culture, and history.
