"The 1936 Olympics remain one of the most iconic times of the 20th century. For Americans, the 1936 Games are inextricably linked to Jesse Owens. “Olympic Pride, American Prejudice” reclaims the story of those 17 men and women who along with Jesse defied Jim Crow and Adolf Hitler and won hearts and medals at the 1936 Summer Games in Berlin. These trailblazers who kicked open the door to a new society and are a seminal moment in the fight for equality."
