The John Carlos Story: The Sports Moment That Changed The World

John CarlosJuly 5, 2013 – Hour 1

We rebroadcast our interview with Olympian and human rights activist John Carlos and David Zirin, co-author of The John Carlos Story: The Sports Moment that Changed the World.

They join us to talk about the pivotal moment at the 1968 Olympics when Carlos and fellow Olympic medalist Tommie Smith sparked an international controversy by raising their fists in the black power salute while receiving their medals.
