Description

Olympic Pride, American Prejudice is a feature-length documentary set in the strained and turbulent atmosphere of a racially divided 1930s America, torn between boycotting Hitler's Olympics or participating in the Third Reich's grandest affair. The film follows 16 men and 2 women through their heroic turn at the Summer Olympic Games in Berlin, 1936. the athletes represented a country that considered them second-class citizens and competed in a country that rolled out the red carpet in spite of an undercurrent of Aryan superiority and Anti-Semitism. 18 athletes carried the weight of a race on their shoulders and stood tall in the middle of a political firestorm. They made the team, travelled to Berlin and did the unexpected with grace and dignity. Their presence on the world stage is a seminal precursor to the Civil Rights Movement. History forgot all except one. This is the story of the other 17.
