Standing on Your Shoulders

Last week I went to the premiere of a new documentary ... I expected to learn something new, and I expected to be inspired, but I didn't expect to be moved quite so much.

The documentary is titled The Renaissance Period of the African American in Sports.  It tells the story of the African American athletes who won numerous medals at the 1936 Olympic Games held in then Hitler's Germany.  These athletes captured the attention of the world and shattered Hitler's quest to sweep the Games that year.

It's an amazing story, and the premiere was accompanied by a live panel discussion.  I was so moved by the commentary that I just had to write about it for Huffington Post.  Give a click here to read.

Appreciate it.  What's your experience?  JIM.
