Defying Hitler: Jesse Owens' Olympic Triumph

by Nel Yomtov
Illustrated by Eduardo Garcia

At the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany, the last thing Adolf Hitler expected was to see a black man compete and win. But Jesse Owens didn't just win. He was dominant in the track and field events, winning four gold medals and helping to set a world record. Now, in this graphic novel, readers can witness one of the most iconic moments in sports history as Owens proves that people of all races can compete and win at the Olympic games.
