Jump to play: this is Double Dutch

It originated from Dutch immigrants to New York City, but quickly became a coming of age tradition for Black girls. This is the Double Dutch, and you just have to jump in to play.

    When I was a child in 50s and 60s, growing up in a little wh!te town on the Jersey Shore, we all jumped double dutch! So it's not just African Americans.

    Who remembers playing this as a child? So much fun!! We played that at school and outside school in Canada as a kid. Now I’m 41.

    So they’re appropriating Dutch culture. Absolutely disgusting!

    Everyone played double Dutch when they were kids. Interesting to know my ancestors brought it over from Holland

    It was a part of the world I was brought up in. It is one of the best physical exercises a person can get in my opinion.
