While the non-violent “Black Power Salute” by U.S. medalists at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics was a defining moment in the Civil Rights movement, it is not often recognized that one of the medalists, John Carlos, was a Cuban-American pocho!

Sabor Afro-Latino en el Movimiento! We salute all Olympic athletes who stand up for human and civil rights.

This includes Australian athlete Peter Norman, at left in the famous 1968 photo, who was participating in the protest by wearing a badge for the Olympic Project for Human Rights, whose nephew Matt just has released a documentary on the event.

Good on ya, mates!

Watch the video of this landmark moment as well as the amazing trailer of Matt Norman’s new documentary, Salute. [Mas…]
