Great talk by Dr. John Carlos, who is famous for being one of the men who
protested on the podium at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City after the men’s 200 meter.
Dr. Carlos is the man on the lower podium. He won the bronze medal in the men’s 200 meter.
This is an inspirational talk about making real change in society. Talks about his young life and how he developed into an Olympic athlete and eventually a professor.
Covers family, media, music and American culture and how each are being manipulated in ways that keep us from changing social issues, carrying about each other and overcoming life’s difficulties.
