Joe Louis and Jesse Owens

I think it’s the same Donald McRae who writes for the Guardian newspaper. What’s amazing to me is this is a world described that’s not that long ago. The idea of having to live in those times is frightening and the sense of all the potential careers, sporting or otherwise that have and are curtailed through prejudice. Check it out if you can. My copy is from my local library.
