February 1, 2023 at 11:10 AM: Jesse Owens, Nazi Ideology, and the 1936 Olympics

Jesse Owens defied Nazi Ideology of superiority with his achievements at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. He won four gold medals (setting an Olympic record in the 100-meter dash and a world record in the 200-meter dash.) When President Bush posthumously awarded Owens the Congressional Medal of Honor in 1990, a decade after his death, he commented that his victories in Berlin were “an unrivaled athletic triumph, but more than that, a triumph for all humanity.”

Berlin’s Olympic games in 1936 centered on Nazi propaganda. Berlin’s city streets were draped in swastikas. Amid shouts of “Heil Hitler” and goose-stepping troops, this terrifying new political system was introduced to the world. To this day, debate continues on whether or not other countries should have participated in an event that the Nazi’s used for political purposes. Discover how one man in the midst of it all (the African-American son of a sharecropper and the grandson of slaves), challenged Hitler’s obsession of Aryan supremacy.

Program duration 30 to 40 minutes.
