Summer 1968 Olympic Games. Tommie Smith had just won the 200-meter race at the Olympics in a world- and Olympic-record time of 19.83 secondS.  As he and John Carlos stood on the podium to receive their Olympic medals, the two decided to take an even greater stance!

As the Star-Spangled Banner began to play, the two bowed their heads and raised their black-gloved fists high in the sky, paying homage to the Black Power Movement and to form a “U” as a sign of unity.
