On October 16, 1968, during the Summer Olympics in Mexico, Tommie Smith and John Carlos (both black Americans) raised a black-gloved fist during the playing of the US national anthem. They had finished first and third place in the 200-meter race, respectively. Australian Peter Norman finished second place and wore the badge of the Olympic Project for Human Rights in solidarity with Smith and Carlos.

All three men were criticized and ostracized upon returning home. Smith and Carlos gave eulogies and served as pallbearers at Norman’s 2006 funeral
This print memorializes their stand for equality despite the backlash they received.
