Black Girls Jump is an organization dedicated to preserving the art of double dutch jump rope and utilizing childhood games as a fun form of fitness. We host public jump rope events, engage in performances and conduct youth programs.
Black Girls Jump is aimed at inspiring women to continue to play double dutch and other jump rope games into adulthood. We also desire to pass the jump rope art form down to younger generations and encourage children to engage in fun, physical activity.
For many women, double dutch jump rope elicits fond memories. Jump rope games were major childhood activities, often passed down intergenerationally. We made friends playing rope, made enemies playing rope, created and sang songs, and contributed to a unique art form and respected sport.
As many black women face health disparities, we believe jump rope games offer a highly effective and fun exercise. Engaging in physical play also helps to relieve stress, and provides fulfilling social engagement. Jumping rope is inexpensive, you don’t have to worry about ruining your hair, and its fun!
We look forward to seeing you jumping in and jumping out of the rope!
