At Black Then, we frequently see interesting photos that give us a glimpse into the past. They tend to show us a piece of black history that is often not covered in textbooks, in history classes, or shown in the media.
In a photo that we found on Black History Album, we see this great image called “Jesse and the 1936 Olympics”. The picture shows Jesse Owens’ Medal ceremony for the long jump at the 1936 Olympics with Tajima, Owens, and Lutz.
