Official Summary: The lives of the other 17 American black athletes who competed in the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin.
ALNM rec: I watched this documentary last year, but it’s definitely a suitable watch during the Olympics. The film profiles the other African American athletes who competed alongside Jesse Owens in Nazi Germany, giving them a long overdue spotlight and showing all the suffered through both abroad at at home. Next time someone argues to keep politics and social issues out of sports, this is a movie you can point them towards.
I know it is available for purchase on Amazon and iTunes, but it could also be available for free from your local cable provider. I watched it on Comcast OnDemand.
