Abstract:

Olympic medalist and activist John Carlos was born in 1945, in Harlem, New York. Carlos entered East Texas State University (ETSU) on a track scholarship. He transferred to San Jose State University in California where he continued track and field competition. He also met sociologist Harry Edwards. With Edwards, he helped to co-find the Olympic Project for Human Rights. Carlos supported Edwards’ efforts to organize a boycott of the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City in protest of the United States’ failure to address human rights. The boycott was not successful but Carlos and teammate Tommie Smith made an historic symbolic salute at the 1968 games, when they placed first and third in the 200-meter event. Smith and Carlos raised black-gloved fists in a silent protest of racism and economic depression of disenfranchised people in the U.S. The head of the U. S. Olympics team banned them from the games.
