Photograph of Tommie Smith & John Carlos at the Olympics in Mexico 68′, please forgive me for not crediting the photographer

A protest which sent shockwaves across the United States, protest against second-class citizenship of African Americans, protest for the voiceless dead in the middle passage, protest representing blue collar workers, protest for freedom of speech.
Goosebumps when I look and warmth in the knowing that Smith & Carlos exist, always existed, always will, Gives me hope that people will be able to look up history books for heroes and be able to find them.
