Olympic Medalists Giving Black Power Sign Posters

At the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City, American Tommie Smith and John Carlos won the gold and bronze medals, respectively, for the 200 meter dash.  In a show of defiance, Tommie Smith and John Carlos raised their arms up at the awards ceremony as a sign of black power.  This symbol represented the fight for civil rights in the United States.  Civil rights was an enormous issue in America in the 1960's, as African-Americans were being discriminated against constantly.  Tommie Smith and John Carlos were banned for life from competing in any further Olympic games.  The silver medalist, Peter Norman, a white Australian, showed his support by wearing an OPHR badge.
