Overview

(90 minutes) Follow the 18 African American athletes who defied Adolf Hitler and Jim Crow to win hearts and medals at the 1936 Olympics. Though the world remembers Jesse Owens, this film shines a light on the other 15 men and two women - Tidye Pickett and Louise Stokes - who collectively changed the world of sports forever and created a seminal moment in the fight for equality and civil rights. Narrated by Blair Underwood. A post-discussion with filmmaker Deborah Riley Draper and Susan Bachrach, curator from the National Holocaust Museum, follows. This screening is a part of the Baltimore Jewish Film Festival, organized by the JCC of Greater Baltimore.
