The power of pink

The Pink Panthers Double Dutch Team graced our blog last week with the fabulous freeze frames of their opening day performance. Today, however, the group had as much to say as their recent pictures’ thousand words.

Rosalyn Jamison (left) is interviewed above by her daughter Mharion Sammons (right). Rosalyn is a co-founder of the Team, seeing a need for double dutch culture as close as her own home. Three years ago Mharion and her sister shied away from the second rope, but can now jump with the best of the team. Thanks to mom Rosalyn and Coach Joyce Dickerson, the sisters – along with dozens of other girls in the suburbs – now savor the flavor of old school Chicago.
