4M Swim Club in Baltimore Celebrates 50th Anniversary


T.J. Smith, retired law enforcement commander, former government spokesperson, and former mayoral candidate fills in for Gabe Ortis.

The 4M Swim Club has taught more African-Americans how to swim in the Baltimore Metropolitan area than any other learn-to-swim entity, according to the organization's website.

Marvin Thorpe, son of the late Marvin A. Thorpe, Sr. –the founder of the 4M Swim Club in 1972– joins T.J. Smith to discuss the history, legacy, and mission of the program.
