Summary:
(1913-1980) Chronically ill as a child, Jesse Owens turned to athletics as a way to overcome his health problems. A talented runner, Owens began matching and beating several world records in track and field events in his senior year of college. Though Jim Crow laws segregated him from his white teammates, Owens won four gold medals and broke two world records in the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin, Germany. Perhaps the greatest track and field athlete in history, he was also politically active, serving on the Board of Directors of the Southside Boys Club. Part of the Black Americans of Achievement Video Collection that celebrates the most influential African Americans in history.

Only available in the US.
