In this special Thanksgiving program, highlights from West’s conversation with Olympian John Carlos and Dave Zirin, co-author of the new text The John Carlos Story: The Sports Moment That Changed the World.
One of the very best in the series. Well done!
Got "About Something'? +
"A man who will not labor to gain his rights, is a man who would not, if had them, prize and defend them." Frederick Douglass 1817-1885
Mr. Douglass would have been so proud of Mr. John Carlos!!
From the scrapbook of my life, a snapshot I'll never forget!!!
We were downstairs at the dorm watching the Olympics on that day. When they threw up the Black Power salute, we went crazy!!!!! Black and Proud! Black and Proud! And so we were then, soooooo proud of them. Still are.
(I'm back. Life is a b****!) LW
