A Conversation with 1968 Olympic Gold Medalist Tommie Smith

Tommie Smith and John Carlos shocked the world in 1968 when they raised their fists wearing black gloves in a black power salute during the medal ceremony at the Mexico City Olympics. Leading up to the games in Mexico, the American black athletes considered a boycott of the games to protest a long list of grievances including racism in the United States, the lack of Black Coaches in the Olympics, and the inclusion of Apartheid South Africa in the Games.

**Special guest Tommie Smith will be in attendance. Book and poster signing!
