Race - Movie

Jesse Owens story and how black athletes dominated the 1936 Berlin Olympics under Hitler's racist nose. It was an Olympics where Hitler hoped to prove his race theory, that Aryans were superior to all other races in the world. Owens won 4 gold medals including the prestigious 100 m, the 200 m, long jump and the 4X100 relay. Fascinating stuff.

And to think we are revisiting that today.
