'Olympic Pride, American Prejudice'
Join us for a free screening celebrating Black History Month of Olympic Pride, American Prejudice. A favorite from the 2017 Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival will open your eyes to the achievements of 18 largely forgotten African American Olympic heroes.
In 1936 when 18 African-American athletes participated in the Berlin Olympic Games, history forgot all except one. This is the story of the other 17. They were world heroes yet returned home to a short-lived glory. This story is complicated. This story is triumphant but unheralded. This story is a vital part of history and is as relevant today as it was almost 80 years ago. (90 min.)
