When you Google “1968 Olympics” the first suggestion returned is “1968 Olympics Black Power salute.” That iconic image, of John Carlos at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City—shoes off, head down, black-gloved fist raised in salute—has come to define the spirit of protest that infused the late 1960s. This spring, as the Library remembers the 1960s in its exhibit, You Say You Want a Revolution, Dr. Carlos will speak with sports writer Dave Zirin about the principles behind the protests of athletes, and what power they have to impact culture and influence politics.Buy tickets/get more info now
