In 1936, the great Jesse Owens won four gold medals at the Olympic Games in Nazi Germany, embarrassing the host nation and its leader, Adolf Hitler. Owens returned home to America to face the same forms of racism he defeated abroad.
However, there were 17 other African-Americans present in Berlin to represent their nation in the Olympic Games. The black history documentary OLYMPIC PRIDE, AMERICAN PREJUDICE tells their story.
These athletes, some of whom also brought home Olympic medals, showed the same indomitable spirit that Owens displayed in Berlin, rising above the racism of the host nation and their home nation alike. But, unlike Owens, none of them had the compensation of fame to soften the blow.
Watch this informative black history film and expose yourself and your family to a slice of African-American history that has been ignored far too long.
