One of the most enduring images of athletes making a sociopolitical statement has to be gold and bronze medal winners Tommie Smith and John Carlos throwing up their fists in the Black Power salute from the medal stand at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City. Smith and Carlos hoped to bring attention to social injustices, including Black poverty, and to remember those brought to America in bondage. The HBO documentary “Fists of Freedom: The Story of the ’68 Olympic Games” (1999) and the BBC doc “Black Power Salute” (2008) cover the event. There’s also an Australian documentary (“Salute”), concerning the third man on the stand, silver medalist Peter Norman, who was punished by his government for his support of the gesture.

He was prosecuted for draft evasion and stripped of his titles, though the Supreme Court overturned his conviction in 1971. He lost four prime boxing years during the court fight but managed to become champion again and an icon who transcends not only his sport, but sports in general.
