Global Peace Film Festival - Olympic Pride, American Prejudice
Start Date: 9/23/2017Start Time: 7:30 PM
End Date: 9/23/2017End Time: 9:00 PM
Event Description:
In 1936, when 18 African American athletes dubbed the “black auxiliary” by Hitler participated in the Berlin Olympic Games, defying Nazi Aryan Supremacy and Jim Crow Racism, history forgot all except one, Jesse Owens. This is the story of the other 17. Their heroic collective action created a seminal moment in Civil Rights. The film follows the athletes from the attempted boycott of the 1936 Olympics to the Trials to the Games and then to the unceremonious return to America.
