Jesse Owens
In August 1936, all americans, but especially African Americans, were proud of the 4 Olympic Gold medals won by Jesse Ownes (a Black American track star) at the Berlin Olympics. The victory was especially sweet, as it embarrasses German dictator Adolph Hitler and his view of the racial superiority of the "aryans."
