Jesse Owens at the Berlin Olympics, August 1936.
In August of 1936, American athlete Jesse Owens won four gold medals, setting three world records and tying a fourth in the 100 yard dash, all in front of Adolf Hitler, who had planned to use the games as a tool to promote the physical superiority of the Aryan race.
IN YOUR FACE, WHITE SUPREMACY!
I did a report on Jesse Owens in middle school…then again chose to dive into his background and do another one in depth in high school during black history month. I love this man.
Crushing White Supremacy one foot step at a time. Take that fascist!
Jessie Owens - proud Buckeye, proud Black American!
