Sink Or Swim: African-American Lifesavers of the Outer Banks
When ships were in trouble off the coast of North Carolina's Outer Banks, the courageous black life-savers at Pea Island Station were first on the scene -- and in the water. Through raging storms, pitch-black nights, and hurricanes, these surfmen performed amazing, death-defying rescues. For over seven decades, the intrepid crews battled fierce waves and racial prejudice. Sink or Swim is the story of their heroism, their struggle, and their triumph.
