Black Power Salute: How a Photograph Captured a Political Protest

Two American athletes made history at the 1968 Summer Olympics, but not on the track. They staged a silent protest against racial injustice. Tommie Smith and John Carlos, gold and bronze medalists in the 200-meter sprint, stood with heads bowed and black-gloved fists raised as the national anthem played during the medal ceremony. The Australian silver medalist wore a human rights badge in support. All three would pay a heavy price for their activism. A Life magazine photograph seen by millions would ensure that the silent protest was remembered, and eventually admired, as a symbol of the battle for equality and civil rights.

Nonfiction Notes from the Horn Book

"An exciting and unique approach to history." - Nonfiction Notes from the Horn Book

May 1, 2018

Booklist - Carolyn Phelan

"The latest set in the Captured History Sports series features photos of African American athletes. Each book tells the story behind the picture on its cover, including relevant biographical information and historical perspective as well as commentary on the featured photo and photographer. Well placed to support the text, the many illustrations include action shots and scenes related to the political and social conditions discussed in many of these volumes. . . .These books will certainly capture the attention of kids interested in sports, civil rights history, or photography." - Booklist
