Online Film Series: Olympic Pride, American Prejud...

Presented by Holocaust Documentation and Education Center at Holocaust Documentation and Education Center

The HDEC has introduced an Online Film Series for our community each available to stream for free on TUBI.

Narrated by Blair Underwood and featuring commentary by Isaiah Thomas and Carl Lewis, Olympic Pride – American Prejudice tells the story of how 18 African American athletes dubbed the “black auxiliary” by Hitler defied Nazi Aryan Supremacy and Jim Crow Racism to win hearts and medals at the 1936 Summer Olympic Games in Berlin. The world remembers Jesse Owens, but Olympic Pride, American Prejudice shows how all 18 are a seminal precursor to the modern Civil Rights Movement.
